Environmental law is a collective phrase describing international treaties (conventions), statutes, regulations, and common law or national legislation (where applicable) that operates to regulate the interaction of humanity and the natural environment, toward the purpose of reducing the impact of human activity.

The topic may be separated into two major subjects: remediation and pollution control, and resource conservation, individual exhaustion. The limitations and expenses that such laws may impose on commerce, and the often unquantifiable (non-monetized) benefit of environmental protection, have generated and continue to generate significant controversy.

Given the sweeping scope of environmental law, no fully definitive list of environmental laws is possible.
