Can corporate sustainability strategies get beyond regulation?

April 2, 2009


Last week the EPA proposed mandatory reporting of the gases blamed for global warming from approximately 13,000 facilities nationwide. The regulation would cover companies that either release large amounts of greenhouse gases directly or produce or import fuels and chemicals that when burned create GHG emissions. These facilities account for 85-90% of the country’s GHG emission

This is yet one more proposal that will start to influence corporate strategy and one of the many potential regulations related to climate change and sustainability that is on the cards. The aim of our Action for a Sustainable America series is enable companies to devise strategies that create a corporate environment in which regulation announcements such as these can be taken-in without breaking stride. 

At our Seattle event in June corporate strategies that get beyond regulation and ahead of the competition are discussed in two great panels by the following

  • David Van’t Hof, Senior Policy Advisor on Energy, and Sustainability, State of Oregon
  • Janice Adair, Special Assistant to the Director, Department of Ecology, State of Washington
  • Stan Price, Executive Director, Northwest Energy Efficiency Council
  • K.C. Golden, Policy Advisor, Climate Solutions
  • Tom Crowninshield, Seattle Plant Manager, Lafarge North America
  • Kevin Wilhelm, CEO, Sustainable Business Consulting
  • Terry Mutter, Head of EHS, The Boeing Company

Let us know in advance if there are any specific questions you would like to be addressed
