Know the Importance of Environmental Licensing

The licensing system is at the core of the implementation of a regulatory framework for the protection of the environment against pollution caused by emissions, discharges or disposal of wastes from a certain activities. In recent years, legislation on environmental permits has not only been implemented generally, but increasingly, in a more integrated approach in which environmental impacts are viewed as a whole. Consequently, the relevant permits refer to all environmental impacts highlighted in the Environmental management Plan. Moreover, after the permit is granted and the environmental conditions enforced, monitoring follows and additional measures are taken if required.

Zimbabwe has adopted an environmental licensing process whereby industrial plants, mines and other enterprises or activities must apply for government permission in the form of licenses granted by the Environmental Management Agency (EMA) to initiate and/or to continue their operation. The purpose of this process is to ensure an environmentally-sound operation of the facilities or activities.
