Turn on the Floodlights: Trends in Disclosure of Environmental Licences and Compliance Data

March 2013

The Centre for Environmental Rights (CER) has, for many years, been using the Promotion of Access to Information Act (PAIA) on behalf of communities and civil society organisations to request access to environmental records held by government and companies.This report, published in March 2013, follows on the Unlock the Doors report. It provides a comparative context for the recommendations in Unlock the Doors, looking both at other domestic legal requirements and international legal requirements and practices. By comparing the levels of disclosure by the same corporate group in different jurisdictions with different legal requirements for disclosure, it powerfully demonstrates how companies tailor their disclosure according to the prevailing legal requirements.
