ELU subjects are often of great interest to the general public and campaign groups, and are frequently contentious. Despite these challenges, the work of NFU Scotland has yielded some notable successes in recent years, from a significant reduction in the size of Scotland’s Nitrate Vulnerable Zones to more proportionate regulations on the management of watercourses.

Scottish Environmental Protection Agency
The Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) is Scotland’s environmental regulator. Our main role is to protect and improve the environment. We do this by being an excellent environmental regulator, helping business and industry to understand their environmental responsibilities, enabling customers to comply with legislation and good practice and to realise the many economic benefits of good environmental practice. We protect communities by regulating activities that can cause harmful pollution and by monitoring the quality of Scotland's air, land and water. The regulations we implement also cover the keeping and use, and the accumulation and disposal, of radioactive substances.

Voluntary Initiative
The Voluntary Initiative was accepted by the Government on the 1st April 2001, in place of a proposed tax on pesticides used in agriculture and horticulture. The initiative was put forward by seven signatory organisations led by the Crop Protection Association. It will last for five years and the estimated annual cost to the crop protection industry will be approximately £2.1 million. In addition, it has been estimated that it will cost farmers in the UK £11 million per year to implement the package of measures on individual farms.
