EA demands more from industry as environmental permit compliance declines

The number of sites fully complying with their environmental permits is declining, according to ENDS’ analysis of Environment Agency figures published last week.

In a report summarising installation and waste operator permit compliance statistics, the agency says that 92% (12,676) were rated in the highest compliance bands A and B in 2018. But it does not mention that this is a 2% decrease from 2017 when 12,923 permits were graded A and B. Nor does it mention that fewer permits were held in total in 2018 (13,771) than in 2017 (13,890).
