A Policy Roundtable on Emerging Environmental Risks in Uncertain Times
Presented by the Environmental Law Institute
and Marsh’s Environmental Practice
Corporate managers and environmental attorneys are confronting risks of a different nature and magnitude than they have ever before. On October 20, 2005, experts shared an update and participated in a discussion of the environmental and public health challenges posed by the Hurricane Katrina cleanup, bioterrorism threats, and global climate change. This event was a policy roundtable that provided information and updates, but also encouraged discussion and sharing of information, ideas, and possible risk management approaches.
