New Legislation on Environmental Responsibility

The Decree-Law No. 147/2008 of 29 July establishes an objective and subjective civil liability regime, under which economic operators and polluters are required to compensate the injured for damages suffered through an environmental component.

This legislation applies to a wide range of operators (including those covered by the legislation regarding the Environmental Permit) and requires operators to provide financial guarantees, enabling them to take environmental responsibility inherent to their activities. These guarantees consist of the subscription of insurance policies, bank guarantees, participation in environmental funds or the provision of capital reserved for this purpose.
