B&D Sponsoring, Speaking at ACC Houston's Environmental Practice Group Inaugural Gathering

Beveridge & Diamond is proud to sponsor the inaugural gathering of the Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC) Houston's Environmental Practice Group, taking place in Houston, TX, on February 21 from 11:30am to 1:00pm (CST). B&D has sponsored the ACC's Environmental & Sustainability Network since 2012.

B&D Principals Karen Hansen and Laura LaValle (Austin), with Kathleen Bertolatus of Phillips 66 Company, will provide an overview and panel discussion of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and Texas self-audit programs, which can be used to save money and enhance compliance with federal and state environmental programs like the Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, and waste requirements. These programs incentivize self-assessment followed by prompt disclosure and correction of noncompliance in exchange for civil penalty relief. The presentation will cover practical tips on the pros and cons of using these programs, common pitfalls, and best practices.
