This informal session will deliver a primer on the Climate Change topic and help you manage all the topics at hand. Few issues are so complicated as climate change and with it slated to be a crucial business concern for decades, it is important to have a fundamental understanding about climate change and the expected legislative, regulatory and legal responses to it.

3:00 - 5:00 pm Program
5:00 - 6:00 pm Cocktails 

Hosted by Scott Segal and Jeff Holmstead, two of the country's leading experts on climate change, you will walk away with a better understanding and preparation for the future, including:

  • The prospects for climate change legislation in Congress.
  • Key issues of concern, from cost containment to international concerns to state and federal relations.
  • Implementation challenges in the regulatory context.
  • Carbon disclosure requirements.
  • Managing climate issues in the public sphere.

This program will be interactive in format, with Q&A encouraged. We look forward to your participation in this program and invite you to stay afterward for cocktails.
