Climate mandates are real and carry the force of law—nationally, state by state and city by city. Companies are already subject to regulatory compliance mandates, are exposed to significant penalties, and may avail themselves of billions of dollars in federal and state subsidies. The problem is these authorities provide little to no tangible guidance on how to develop long-term compliance strategies and leverage public resources.
From monitoring legislation, engaging in government advocacy and crafting compliance strategies to examining your supply chain and identifying areas of improvement for emissions reduction, energy efficiency, water conservation and waste management, Manatt has the strategic experience to evaluate your business exposure and identify incentive opportunities.
Whether you have comprehensive corporate sustainability policies in place or are just beginning to assess your carbon footprint, our professionals can guide you through the maze of federal, state and local regulations while accounting for market trends and financial opportunities aimed at mitigating climate risk and enhancing sustainable business practices.
As the world enters a new age of energy, shifting from hydrocarbons to renewables, regulations, markets and consumer preferences are in constant flux. We help clients navigate a complex web of regulations as it relates to clean energy alternatives, environmental compliance, due diligence and licensing.
The range of technologies being deployed to reduce or eliminate emissions and extract and manage carbon is expanding rapidly.
