In January 2018, B&D launched the China EHS Roundtable. The purpose of the Roundtable is to give multinational companies with interests in China a forum through which to learn about China’s rapidly increasing environmental, health, and safety (EHS) regulations; manage enforcement risks; and ultimately advance EHS compliance, supply chain management, and sustainable development in China.
For many years, B&D has helped companies identify, understand, and comply with the expanding body of international, national, and sub-national environmental laws in countries and regions throughout the world. China is no exception. The Roundtable draws on this experience, the insights of several lawyers in the firm with deep expertise on Chinese environmental matters, and the shared experiences of company participants.
The Roundtable offers members the following benefits:
- One in-person meeting per year* to learn about what is happening in China from a regulatory standpoint:
- Fall meeting in Washington, DC
- Two webinars and one conference call per year to discuss emerging legal, policy, and enforcement trends in China.
- Quarterly written reports by B&D that provide updates on and resources for tracking environmental enforcement and regulatory developments.
*Next year we hope to return to our schedule of two in-person meetings, one in DC and one in China.
The Roundtable serves as a forum and resource for EHS lawyers and senior managers from multinational companies with government relations, regulatory, facility, product, or market-access responsibilities involving China.
