Stacey Sublett Halliday, Julius Redd to Present on Environmental Justice Risks and Opportunities for ACC
Principals Stacey Sublett Halliday and Julius Redd (Washington, DC) will present an Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC) Environmental & Sustainability Network Legal Update webinar, "Environmental Justice 201: Evaluating EJ Risks and Opportunities."
The Biden Administration's “whole-of-government” approach to environmental justice (EJ) has led to a plethora of new regulations, guidance, and considerations for industry coming from numerous federal agencies. There has also been a significant uptick in state legislative and regulatory activity in recent years. While these developments have impacted layers of company operations, permitting has been at the center of the discussion. During this Legal Update, our speakers will underscore practical tips and resources for companies to use to assess their own EJ risks in the permitting process, as well as highlighting common throughlines of new developments at the state and federal level. Mike Auger (Senior Vice President & Chief Business Officer, Ever-Green Energy) will provide an overview of Ever-Green’s on-the-ground experience with these evolving EJ requirements and funding opportunities.
