Sustainability, Decarbonization and the Federal Environment: A Regulatory Overview

Tuesday, April 9, 2024 | 2:10-2:55 p.m. | The Mayflower Hotel, Washington, DC 

Almost weekly, we see more evidence of how climate shifts are changing how we live, do our jobs, and build our communities. From the wildfires in Maui and inland flooding in Kentucky to the heat domes throughout the Midwest and historic sea temperatures in the Gulf, climate risks threaten lives and cost tens of billions of dollars in wealth and productivity. 

Nations are moving towards greater analysis and disclosure of the actual costs of climate risk. Across the EU and North America, regulators are pushing private and public entities toward greater introspection and external reporting of ways that climate risks and opportunities are changing the economic landscape. In the US, new disclosure standards at the federal level, such as the Securities and Exchange Commission and the state level, California (SB253 / SB261), seek to empower investors and lead to greater consumer vigilance. 

Meanwhile, other efforts from the Federal Acquisition Council and the Financial Accounting Standards Advisory Board aim to influence federal agencies' buying behaviors. These changes will have nationwide impacts on the economy's behavior as a whole. Join us for a discussion about what changes are happening in the macroeconomic and regulatory environments that will impact building the infrastructure of the transition economy.
