Late on 21 April 2016, the Queensland Parliament passed the Environmental Protection (Chain of Responsibility) Amendment Act 2016 (Act).
Key amendments to Chain of Responsibility Bill include:
- Financial beneficiaries of Queensland projects that involve an environmentally relevant activity including any company which has a subsidiary involved in Queensland projects carrying out this type of activity.
- Reinforcing the need for holding companies and other related persons to take steps to understand and manage their increased exposure to environmental risks.
