Environmental, social/societal, and economic sustainability should be the ultimate goal of regulation, and this is more achievable if regulations are implemented in a flexible manner to allow for protection via a variety of technical and management approaches. Flexibility in regulation should also lead to the adoption of new technologies that provide corollary benefits such as energy efficiency, resource recovery, and ultimately, a move toward greater sustainability and a reduced human footprint on the Earth.
