A New Day for EJ: Environmental Justice with an ESG Twist

March 4, 2021 • Webinar

Starts: 1:00 PM (EST)
Ends: 2:00 PM (EST)

Please join members of Crowell & Moring’s Environment and Natural Resources Group, with special guest speaker Patricia Spitzley, Deputy Redevelopment Manager and Director of Government Relations for the RACER Trust, for a webinar as they explore the Biden Administration’s focus on environmental justice through an ESG lens. 

President Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris are putting environmental justice (“EJ”) centerstage as they fill out their Administration. EJ as a policy focus is not limited to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency; rather, EJ principles can be found throughout the cross-sectional environment, social, and governance (“ESG”) space, which is of increasing importance to investors, shareholders, and other stakeholders. Companies must stay abreast of these issues or risk both missing out on valuable opportunities and facing increasing enforcement actions. 

Topics to be discussed will include: 

  • The origins and evolution of EJ
  • How the Administration plans to employ EJ principles throughout the Executive Branch 
  • Factoring EJ into the corporate ESG framework 
  • What to expect on the ground for new and existing projects with EJ implications
