The term 'green criminology' emerged in the early 1990s to describe a critical and sustained approach to the study of environmental crime. Green criminology broadly refers to the study by criminologists of environmental harms (that may incorporate wider definitions of crime than those provided in strictly legal definitions), environmental laws (including enforcement, prosecution and sentencing practices), and environmental regulation (systems of civil and criminal law that are designed to manage, protect and preserve specified environments and species, and to manage the negative consequences of particular industrial processes).
