At present, environmental crimes are becoming more and more serious in various countries. How to effectively combat environmental crimes has become a difficult problem facing all countries. Germany legislates through the criminal code model, Britain and the United States legislates through the administrative criminal law model, and Japan adopts the comprehensive legislation model to regulate environmental crimes. Each country is based on its own national conditions and laws and regulations to establish a suitable mode of environmental criminal law legislation. However, in the present severe state of environmental crimes, it is suitable to adopt the model of unified criminal code to make special legislation and centralized legislation on environmental crimes. Establishing this kind of legislation pattern is the basic requirement to promote the status of environmental crime in the criminal law, which is beneficial to combating environmental crime and conforms to the environmental protection policy idea of our country.
