The Environmental Regulatory Framework Index evaluates countries' national environmental legislation and their engagement with major multilateral environmental agreements. It also provides an assessment of the legal, institutional and governance factors which inform the implementation and enforcement of environmental policies, laws and regulations.
The Environmental Regulatory Framework Index can help you:
Pinpoint locations in your operations or supply chain where weak environmental regulations are likely to translate into financial costs
Align your overall business strategy with long-term value creation by gaining visibility of the strength of environmental laws in your locations
Increase your supply chain’s net benefit to society by building a supplier base in locations with robust environment regulations
