Due to its Geographical placement in a disaster prone location, environmental issues are always critical in Nepal. The awareness of conservation of environment and nature is growing at a public level. There are also some examples of closing down businesses following adverse public opinion and protests made by environmental activists. Sustainable business initiatives are gaining appreciation and are afforded tax incentives and other concessions.
A set of law deals with the environmental matters in Nepal which has been supplemented by various scattered legislations. The regulatory circulars and directives also have considerable impact on the business. In the absence of single regulator, different authorities come into play on matters within their competence adding difficulty in compliance and posing business and reputational risk.
