To ask the Scottish Government what action it is taking to ensure that Ineos improves its operation regarding environmental performance.

Answered by: Roseanna Cunningham 23 May 2017

Delivery and enforcement of environmental regulations is the responsibility of the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA). SEPA engages with regulated bodies through inspections, monitoring and wider engagement to ensure that environmental requirements are complied with; and where not, that appropriate remedial and enforcement action is undertaken in-line with the SEPA enforcement policy.
