WEBINAR: 2021 AEBN NATIONAL ENVIRONMENTAL COMPLIANCE CONFERENCE: New Laws, Developments & Funding from across Australia for Business in 2021

ABOUT THE PROGRAM:

Significant changes to a number of environmental laws across Australia were expected in 2020.  Due to the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic the expected changes were delayed.  As we move to a post COVID world, we now expect many of these changes to be implemented during 2021.

The AEBN National Environmental Compliance Conference will focus on environmental compliance changes and funding opportunities from across Australia that are expected to take effect in 2021. One of the most significant changes expected to take effect on 1 July 2021 is the Victorian Environment Protection requirements.  These changes from across Australia will impact the way you manage your organisation’s environmental responsibilities and obligations.

The Conference will provide an all-round perspective by key Regulators, leading environmental lawyers and environmental experts – to assist you in understanding IF, HOW and WHEN change should be implemented within your business operations.

The Conference is designed for industry, business and councils across Australia to PLAN FOR 2021 – in order to remain compliant.
