EMLF’s 41st Annual Institute & Fall Symposium
October 13 @ 10:00 am - October 17 @ 12:00 pm EST
Attorneys Ben Clapp, Julie Domike and Kevin Garber will co-present “Implications of Growing Climate Change Momentum for the Energy Industry” at EMLF’s 41st Annual Institute & Fall Symposium, October 13,-17 2020. Increased public concern about addressing climate change has resulted in a building momentum of political and public pressure to transition to a low-carbon economy. This pressure has spurred novel litigation theories, far-reaching legislative proposals, shareholder activism, corporate climate change policies and other business responses. This program will address:
- Some of the sources of this this pressure – lenders, investors, insurers
- Key U.S. legal decisions and ongoing litigation related to climate change
- Prominent federal and state legislation (including recent developments the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative in the northeast states),
- How corporations in the energy industry are reacting – corporate sustainability announcements and goals, SEC filings, restructuring and divestitures
