The implementation of regulatory policy is central to protecting our environment and our natural resources. Whether businesses comply with environmental regulations depends heavily on the design and enforcement of such regulations. The European Union has long had a reputation for high standards coupled with flexible enforcement that makes for more cooperative compliance, but some scholars argue that the European Union’s system of checks and balances and its expansion of judicially-enforceable rights are leading its policies down a path of legalistic and rigid enforcement standards. I examine these claims and what they mean for the future of environmental protection in the European Union and beyond.
