Meeting of The Environmental Law Institute’s Corporate In-House Counsel and EHS Officers Council

The Environmental Law Institute’s Corporate In-House Counsel and EHS Officers Council (EHS Council) is a new ELI program exclusively with and for corporate EHS and sustainability colleagues from across corporate sectors. Through intimate closed-door meetings, corporate professionals explore issues unique to corporate governance in an age of increased environmental accountability, liability and risk.  EHS Council programs present a unique opportunity for in-house EHS officials to have candid conversations about best practices and practical considerations for mitigating risks and ensuring EHS compliance in a rapidly emerging and unpredictable environment.

ELI held an invite-only webinar on the future of corporate environmental disclosures. Ceres’ Senior Program Director for Capital Market Systems, Veena Ramani, provided an insightful presentation followed by an open question and answer session.

Following the conversation with Ms. Ramani, this convening segued into a closed-door discussion focused on the challenges associated with environmental disclosures.  Participants had ample opportunity to share strategies and learn other effective methods for navigating this complex and growing area of environmental governance.
