Post Graduate Diploma/Executive Diploma in Environment Regulatory Affairs


Regulatory framework in any country plays a crucial role in making an environmental governance model robust, responsive and efficient. The functionalities of these bodies are in overseeing the implementation of pollution control, conservation of natural resources, hazardous waste control, e-waste management and climate change. Agencies like the Wildlife Crime Control Bureau work to combat illegal wildlife trade, protecting endangered species and preserving biodiversity. Another example is the Forest Survey of India and the Indian Council of Forestry Research and Education which contribute to sustainable forest management, ensuring the conservation of forest and their resources.

An example of an environmental regulatory intervention that impacted global governance is the Paris Agreement. The agreement represents a significant milestone in global governance as it involves nearly every country in the world, with each nation submitting its own nationally determined contribution (NDC) to the overall effort. These contributions outline the specific actions each country will take to reduce emissions and adapt to the impacts of climate change.

Environmental regulations can stimulate technological; innovation for the purpose of promoting sustainable development, thereby bolstering enterprise resilience. Environmental policies result in improving cost control, reducing incidents that result in liability, conserving raw materials and energy, thereby improving monitoring of environmental impacts.

Apart from environmental and governance, the social impact of the regulatory environment deserves mention. As the man machine interface deals with regulatory and governance pressures, social impact gains prominence in sustainable development and ESG initiatives. Today, awareness and outreach activities are incomplete without the knowledge and utility of regulatory environment concerning a society or habitat.

As these acts and laws change rapidly in the wake of the changing climate, the regulatory actions evolve too. So, there is a growing demand for skilled personnel who can analyse a scheme and implement them in ongoing operations. This course covers the verticals where such progress is currently unprecedented. It is specifically designed for the benefit of ESG leaders, disaster management and process transformation executives for efficient project management and administration.
