B&D China EHS Roundtable
We are pleased to announce the launch of our China EHS Roundtable on January 1, 2018. 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.
In July, we welcomed Of Counsel Weiwei Luo to our Washington, DC, office, whose practice focuses on sustainability, EHS, data privacy, energy, and government regulatory issues in China. At her prior firm, Weiwei co-led the China EHS Roundtable, and she has coordinated with several interested companies on re-launching the Roundtable at B&D with the support of the firm’s broader International Environmental Law and Global Supply Chains practices.
The Roundtable offers members the following benefits:
- Two in-person meetings per year, one in China and one in Washington, DC, to learn about regulatory developments in China
- Quarterly conference calls to discuss emerging legal, policy, and enforcement trends in China
- Monthly written reports by B&D that provide updates on and resources for tracking environmental enforcement and regulatory developments
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.
