The shift of administration has prompted sweeping changes in the direction of U.S. environmental policy. Several regulatory actions with a significant focus on climate change, environmental justice, chemical regulation, and water regulation have already been proposed or finalized at both state and federal levels. Similarly, more frequent environmental inspections and heightened enforcement efforts are expected in the coming months. Thus, it is even more important for regulated industries to keep abreast of current and emerging developments and implement thorough protocols and compliance programs.

Listen to a panel of key thought leaders and distinguished professionals assembled by The Knowledge Group as they provide a comprehensive discussion of the up-to-date trends and developments in environmental regulation. Speakers will also discuss critical issues, enforcement priorities, and offer practical strategies to help companies successfully navigate through the shifting paradigm of environmental law.

Key topics include:

  • Environmental Regulations: Trends and Developments
  • Proposed and Recently Finalized Regulations
  • Critical Issues and Challenges
  •  Best Compliance Practices
  •  A Regulatory Outlook
