The primary lens for analysis of environmental crime is green criminology, arelatively new area of substantial and theoretical endeavour within the field ofcriminology (Hall 2015; Lynch and Stretesky 2014; South and Brisman 2013;White and Heckenberg 2014). Green criminology refers to the study of environmentalharms, which may incorporate wider definitions of crime than areprovided by strictly legal definitions; environmental laws including enforcement,prosecution, and sentencing practices; and environmental regulation,that is, systems of criminal, civil, and administrative law designed to manage,protect, and preserve specified environments and species, and to manage thenegative consequences of particular industrial processes (White 2008a, 2011).
