Environmental law is one amongst the rapidest developing facets of law. It is generally agreed upon that those that cause harm or damage should be paying in a method or another for such harm. Such harm may be to the society or to our surroundings or to our body at an intimate level. Due to lack of sanctions in environmental law, it became very difficult to keep an eye on the hazardous activities. This required the initiation of a penalty to punish the folks that caused damage or harm to the environment. This gave ascent to what we all know today as the ‘Polluter Pays Principle’. This principle implies that the value of pollution should be paid polluter and not by the authorities. This principle is taken into account to be the foremost adequate environmental strategy and has been constituted in numerous international and regional agreements regarding pollution. This conception of Polluter pays has been breathing even prior to the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) approved it as a recognized precept of environmental law.
