Topic: Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Your Business – Recognizing and Mitigating Your Risk
This Webinar took place on July 22, 2009
Overview: In April, EPA issued a proposed rule requiring covered facilities to submit annual reporting of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. In May, legislation designed to establish a regulatory framework for a national carbon cap-and-trade system was introduced. Impact of general debate on climate change to business is no longer academic but present and real. This presentation will discuss how GHG emission poses a risk as well as an opportunity in today’s business environment and offer insights to how organizations can best position themselves in an evolving GHG regulatory framework and a carbon-constraint economy.
Specifically, the session will address:
- Evolving GHG regulatory landscape in North America
- Current development of regional initiatives
- Key legal implications to business operation
- Basic steps towards entity emission inventory and reporting
- Role and benefits of independent verification in entity emission reporting
This presentation will be presented by Wilhelm Wang and moderated by Lisa Williams, Editor of Environmental Protection.
