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.
