Evolving Climate Change Regulations: Anticipating Corporate Risks and Liabilities (Part 1: Developing Trends in Law and Litigation)
State and local legislatures and regulators are forcing corporate America to come to grips with global warming issues. Despite the federal government's reluctance to join international efforts to address the causes of climate change, state and local governments are moving forward.
Several states have introduced or passed legislation, issued regulations and even filed lawsuits to hold companies accountable for their emissions that contribute to climate change.
On April 2, 2007, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in Massachusetts v. Environmental Protection Agency, that EPA has authority to regulate emissions of greenhouse gases from new motor vehicles and remanded the matter to EPA. How will this landmark decision impact American companies?
Listen and participate from your telephone as our panel of environmental law specialists reviews in Part One the current state of climate-change laws and regulations affecting American companies and the developing trends in the law and litigation, including the impact of Massachusetts v. EPA. In Part Two, our panel will discuss strategies for businesses to implement to reduce risks and liabilities related to climate-change issues.
