Abstract

Enterprises’ self-environmental protection compliance is a positive strategy to deal with environmental risks. With the continuous implementation of the “dual carbon” goal (Carbon Peak by 2030 and Carbon Neutrality by 2060), corporate compliance is not only a moral and environmental protection obligation to undertake, but also an important legal issue involving the legal field. The risks and difficulties of corporate environmental protection compliance are increasing. Strengthening the construction of environmental protection compliance risk prevention mechanisms for Chinese enterprises is the key to Chinese enterprises’ identification, prevention and remediation of environmental protection compliance risks. The existing suggestions on enterprise compliance risk prevention are mostly at the theoretical level. There are many legal dilemmas, such as the lack of subject compliance and environmental protection risk management, the legal problems between compliance reform theory and practical operation, and the omissions in the construction of unified and systematic rule of law prevention. In view of this, based on the background of carbon neutrality, we should establish a carbon-neutral environmental protection concept, strengthen ecological monitoring, provide law-abiding incentives to reduce compliance costs, establish a legal mechanism for compliance and environmental protection, and incentivize enterprises to operate in a multi-dimensional manner. Propose the operating rules for corporate compliance and environmental protection risk management and the legal path for risk prevention.
