Micro Businesses and Environmental Regulation - BR0102

Description
The research aims to look more closely at the way micro businesses experience and respond to environmental regulation, and how policy can be designed better to reduce the regulatory burden on micro businesses, whilst maintaining environmental objectives. This will be important in helping Defra deliver the Coalition Government's committment to reduce regulatory burden on the smallest businesses.
