Smart regulation would cut costs and drive innovation

29th July 2011

AG's new lead for best-value regulation, Terry A'Hearn, calls for smarter regulation that would cut costs, simplify compliance, and spark “genuine business sustainability innovation”. In an article in ENDS, Terry draws on his 20 years’ experience in the Australian state of Victoria’s Environment Protection Authority (EPAV) to argue for the introduction of an "environmental driving license" and greater use of civil sanctions.
