Why You Should Attend

Coming off of the hottest year on record, policymaking and enforcement are becoming increasingly important in our country’s ongoing quest to balance environmental protection with consumer and industry interests. The infrastructure legislation and the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 are both seen as major steps forward for U.S. federal climate law and our efforts to reduce emissions. On the heels of those bills have been a series of pieces of guidance – related both to the implementation of those bills as well as agency guidance, including the SEC’s finalized climate disclosure rule.

With so much happening in the U.S. alone, environmental practitioners, in-house counsel, and related professionals must stay current on these rapidly developing and significant legal changes. Join our panel of environmental law experts and get up-to-date on climate change-related policy in the U.S. in 2024.

What You Will Learn

Through a roundtable discussion format, our varied panelists – offering an array of experience in government, in-house, and private practice – will: 

  • Take a deep dive into the Inflation Reduction Act: The key tax credits it makes available (including 45V for clean hydrogen and 45Z for low-emission transportation fuels); implementation by cities and local governments; how corporations are responding and what aspects they can utilize; and carbon capture utilization and sequestration
  • Discuss the revised EPA Clean Air Act section 111 rules for power plant greenhouse gasses, including the under-regulation of peakers near cities and environmental justice communities 
  • Explore the transportation sector decarbonization policy, law, and regulation at both the state and federal levels, including the vehicle greenhouse gas rules 
  • Review the SEC climate disclosure rule and rulemaking, as well as related developments in California

Questions will be submitted live to the faculty and all registrants will receive downloadable course materials to accompany the program.
