Until recently it has been too easy to overlook Small and Medium-size Enterprises in the analysis of environmental impact of particularly the manufacturing sector (ibid 2003). SMEs continue to grow, so do their environmental impacts. SMEs are faced by such challenges as difficulty in raising capital, limited managerial skills, regulatory constraints, limited extension services and difficulty in getting access to technology The study found out that SMEs where copies of environment related laws existed and staffs were aware of the laws, respondents indicated involvement in environmental management practices. It is thus concluded that legal provisions influenced adoption of good environmental management practices by Small and Medium-size Manufacturing enterprises. Key words: Legal Requirements. Environmental Concern. Sustainability Practices
