Regulation / Environmental Law

In recent years, environmental law has been having a significant impact on corporations and businesses in Israel.

This field, which is characterized by dynamism, extensive regulations and complexity, alongside steadily increasing administrative and criminal enforcement, requires relevant and tight legal counseling in order to ensure that the business activities of those corporations and businesses maintain compliance with the latest regulations.

Barnea & Co.’s environmental law practice has extensive and in-depth expertise in this field. Our team provides legal advisory services to leading companies in the economy and to international corporations operating in Israel in relation to environmental aspects of such industries as plastic, textiles, water desalination, sewage treatment, transportation, real estate and energy (gas, electricity and renewable energy).

 

The legal services that Barnea & Co. provides to its clients in this field include a full complement of legal counselling, ongoing assistance and representation in relation to all commercial, civil, administrative and criminal aspects of environmental issues, including representation of clients before the Ministry of Environmental Protection, the Water Authority, water and sewage corporations and additional authorities.

 

We provide ongoing legal advice to our clients on such issues as water pollution, solid contamination, sewage, electric and electronic equipment waste, recycling, business licensing proceedings and other operating and environmental permits, and we assist our clients with compliance with the requirements of environmental regulations applying to them and to their operations.

 

Additionally, our environmental team at Barnea and Co. advises on mergers and acquisitions transactions, fundraising and financing, and provides advice on topics relating to environmental regulations and risk management, including due diligence examinations, negotiations and drafting of contractual provisions addressing the division of risks between parties during transactions and thereafter.

“Green Licensing” Reform in Israel

Recently, the Israeli Ministry of Environmental Protection published a preliminary draft bill relating to the proposed Integrated Environmental Licensing Law, 5775-2015.

This preliminary draft bill, which is based on the European Union’s Industrial Emissions Directive 2010/75/EU, was disseminated as a result of the Israeli government’s decision in April 2015 to work towards improving environmental regulations and encouraging “green” growth by promoting an integrated environmental licensing law. This came in the wake of the Israeli government’s commitment as part of its OECD accession process, after a number of years of collaborative efforts between the Ministry of Environmental Protection and other government ministries and after consulting with numerous authorities in the business, public and third sectors.
