The environment constitutes a group right, endowed with an indivisible object without a determined ownership and interconnected by certain circumstances indeed. Considering its relevance and the need to ensure its preservation and safeguard the environment for present and future generations, the Magna Carta of 1988 instituted in its text the protection of the environment, by means of axiological precepts, and the infraconstitutional legal framework established stricter tuitions, including in the penal. Through bibliographic research, with the analysis of national and international scientific articles, and research of Brazilian legislation, this work was carried out in order to verify the effectiveness of environmental laws. Thus, the objective of the research is to analyze the applicability of principles, highlighting the principles of prevention in the environmental sphere, as well as the form of accountability of the causers/polluters for the damage practiced. The case study took into account the environmental damage related to the Mariana Dam, the Ultra cargo Fire and the Brumadinho Dam.
