Equity in Action: Navigating the Environmental Justice Imperative
An Antea Group Webinar
December 4, 2023 /3BL/ - Environmental Justice, a long-standing concern, has recently gained significant prominence as an urgent issue, particularly with a renewed emphasis on addressing the needs of marginalized and minority communities. Against the backdrop of intensifying efforts to combat climate change, the Biden administration has placed Environmental Justice and a "Just Transition" at the forefront of its strategy.
Notably, recent infrastructure legislation has allocated substantial funding to advance Environmental Justice, signaling a forthcoming shift toward Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) reporting requirements that encompass this critical dimension. Furthermore, private litigation related to Environmental Justice is on the rise, even in the absence of specific regulations, while several states are taking proactive measures in the absence of federal guidelines.
