Natural Resources Wales (NRW) has only imposed one penalty for violating emissions trading system (ETS) rules – and has declined to do so several times - since its formation in 2013.

The sole penalty was imposed against Hansen Quarry Products Europe’s asphalt plant in Machen, near Newport. From 1 January 2013 to 26 June 2014 it carried out a regulated activity without a permit, contrary to regulation 52 of the Greenhouse Gas Emissions Trading Scheme Regulations 2012. The firm was ordered to pay a penalty of £26,752.
