A well-functioning system of environmental compliance assurance has a multitude of societal and economic benefits. It protects public health and the environment, and helps countries implement environmental policies at lower overall costs. It promotes the rule of law and good governance, as well as the expansion of citizen engagement. Finally, it can boost investor confidence and stimulate the creation of new jobs.
