That while working towards the common future of the world as a whole the modern environmental laws originate from a set of principles promulgated ever since 1987 by the World Commission on Environment and Development and further strengthened in 1992 at the Earth Summit’s Rio Declaration. The same can be observed in The Indian Constitution where it has cast a duty upon every State to protect and endeavour to improve the environment and safeguard its forest reserve and wildlife and at the same time it also becomes imperative for the citizens to ensure that they do the same.
The precautionary principle requires that, if there is a strong speculation or suspicion that a certain activity might harm or deteriorate the environment and such consequences if not controlled may have adverse effect over the environment then in those circumstances it is better to control, modulate such activity beforehand than to leave impact on the environment which is beyond repair.
The prevention principle is the one which finds its existence in laws regulating the generation, transportation, treatment, storage, and disposal of various hazardous waste and laws regulating the use and production of pesticides. The principle was formulated to minimize the production of hazardous waste and to combat illegal dumping.
In environmental law, the polluter pays principle is one of the modern concepts of environmental law which was coined to make the human race take the responsibility of their acts being done towards the environment. The principle was enacted to make the party responsible for producing pollution responsible for paying back to the environment for the damage done to the natural environment.
With this Principle it is ensured that every environment affecting or impacting act should have integrated environmental consideration, i.e. development and environment should work hand in hand.
Decisions about environmental protection must integrate the views of the public. According to this principle it becomes all the more important that every government decision should be guided and formulated considering the public views and opinion, i.e. the policy making should have a bottom to top approach not the top to bottom.
Sustainable development means that every approach of the human race should be such that it is able to meet the needs of the current generation without compromising the needs and ability of the future generation to make use of the environment.

Environment law is a very broad area of the law which governs the statutes concerning the environment – including regulations and clean-up regarding hazardous or chemical materials and consequences of individuals who violate environmental statutes.
The business or individual (if found guilty) could face serious charges, fines, imprisonment or probation. In some cases, the business or individual could be given a combination of these punishments.
Yes and it has been done in the past. For instance, if a company or organization uses chemicals which travel to the individual’s property and cause damages or injuries- that individual can take that business or organization to court.
It really depends upon the case. For instance, if someone dumps trash or hazardous material onto your property, you could force him or her to pay for the clean-up. You will need to speak with a lawyer in order to determine what compensation you can seek.
