Description

A Washington Monthly investigation reports on audit privileges for companies that have voluntarily discovered and disclosed information about their polluting activities. The Environmental Protection Agency, however, finds that audit laws, so far adopted by 19 states, make enforcement more difficult. The issue is exemplified with the case of Coors, which discovered that brewery emissions are polluting the air, and was fined more than $1 million for violations of environmental laws. Around 75% of companies now do environmental self-audits, the magazine reports. Those that don't often say they fear paying penalties in case they discover their own violations.
