Environmental Protection: How Companies Stay ahead of Regulatory and Policy Trends

Date: 26 Sep 2017
Location: Shanghai, China

Environmental enforcement is intensifying, increasing operating costs and disrupting operations. This is happening in a context characterized by rising professionalism, effective information sharing and their strong commitment to environmental protection.

The rules and regulations are evolving at a steady pace and enforcement is tightening. In addition to the new environmental tax coming into effect in 2018, central and local authorities are continuously introducing or amending measures covering range of concerns, including emissions, waste disposal, fees, reporting and disclosure.

To get practical insights, we have invited prominent speakers from Firmenich, Clariant and Novartis. In their presentations, these multinational companies will present their approach and explain how they deal with these changes.

In the second part of the evening, we are having a panel discussion to further discuss the topic and see how businesses can get in front and stay ahead of environmental policy, regulatory and enforcement trends. To help you prepare and mitigate risk exposure, our expert panel will discuss:

-What is changing: The rules, the fees, the players, the financial and operational exposure of your business

-Why are things changing: New generations of leadership and regulatory professionals, strong consensus on urgent need

-Who are the significant actors: More enforcers, changing KPIs, rise of social media and instant reporting, and increasingly vocal complaints

-How to prepare: Know your local authorities, understand your sector, assess your real risk

-How to stay ahead: Government engagement, proactive communications, community engagement, associations.
