Talking Politics, Climate Change and the Greening of DC and CA (and What It Means to You)

With climate change policy at the center of the Biden-Harris agenda, what impacts and opportunities will we see during the next four years, nationally and in California?

Join us for a one-hour nonpartisan panel discussion with an experienced group of Manatt professionals from our government and regulatory and environmental law teams. The panelists will discuss a variety of topics related to how the new federal administration’s environmental and climate change policies are impacting various industries nationally and in California.

Featured topics will include:

  • Climate Change Policy Updates: A look at how the Biden administration is continuing to make climate change policy a pillar of its agenda and what Congress plans to achieve in the coming months.
  • Key Environmental Regulatory Updates for California: A discussion on the latest legislation affecting manufacturers, retailers and consumers in the Golden State.
  • Environmental Enforcement in California and Beyond: California is known for its progressive environmental enforcement, but are other jurisdictions following its lead?
