The present article forms an introduction to those that follow. It sets the law relating to civil liability for environmental damage in the context of economic theory, and examines, inter alia, whether fault liability or strict liability is the better instrument for ensuring that environmental damage is minimised and whether the liability of individual industrial operators is best covered by insurance or whether specialist compensation funds are a more effective option.
