As long as a capitalist economy fails to capture the costs of negative externalities, there is little incentive for corporations to reduce their environmental impact. However, as shown through the Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, Dodd-Frank, among other local, national, and international laws, businesses are required to evaluate and report their risks and impacts. That requirement can provide incentive for more sustainable actions. The following speakers will present information about successes and challenges in using regulation, legislation, and legal action to drive change for a more sustainable world.
Come meet and hear speak:
Ann Brewster Weeks, Senior Counsel, Legal Director at Clean Air Task Force.
Erica Mattison, Legislative Director, Environmental League of MA
Lea Reynolds, Managing Senior Policy Analyst, M.J. Bradley & Associates, LLC, Concord MA
Steve Long, Government Relations, The Nature Conservancy
