Natural Resources are things like land and water. But what do people consider Natural Resources? Those types of resources are described in 40 C.F.R.

The Code of Federal Regulations (C.F.R.) is a codification of the general and permanent rules published in the Federal Register by the executive departments and agencies of the Federal Government. The C.F.R. is divided into 50 titles representing broad areas subject to Federal regulation. Each title is divided into chapters that usually bear the issuing agency's name and have an alphanumeric designation. Each branch is further subdivided into parts covering specific regulatory areas.

For example, 40 C.F.R. specifies standards for how the government protects and manages fish and wildlife in National Wildlife Refuges.

U.S. Natural Resource Laws protect everything from national parks to endangered species to rivers, streams, lakes, and ponds. They are responsible for preserving national treasures like Yosemite National Park, the Grand Canyon, Niagara Falls, and more.

Environmental regulations significantly influence business logistics, and one penalty for breaching environmental laws is the loss of business. Being environmentally aware and complying with current legislation ensures that your business runs smoothly and that a supplier can serve you in the long term.

Landowners and governments have statutes and legal systems determining how natural resources may be used and protected.
