The paper will attempt to provide a pollution prevention legislative overview of where the authors have been, where they are, and some thoughts on pollution prevention legislative trends for the future. Governments have an important role to play by setting the regulatory framework, but cleaner production cannot be decreed by law without the support of science and proper incentives. Pollution prevention must be an environmental priority and obligation for producers and consumers all over the world. International pollution prevention agreements and multi-national companies producing products all over the world to achieve comparative advantages will be the trend for pollution prevention targets of obligation. The base of any successful international environmental program will be the motivation for pollution prevention.
