Sustainability Legislation Panel on Feb. 4 in Cambridge

See also

On February 4, 2014, the Boston Area Sustainability Group will co-host an informational panel with New England Women in Energy and the Environment (coordinated by Boston Green Blog!). The theme of the discussion is using legislation and regulation to promote environmental sustainability. As long as a capitalist economy fails to capture the costs of negative externalities, there is little incentive for corporations to reduce their environmental impact. However, as shown through the Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, Dodd-Frank, among other local, national, and international laws, businesses are required to evaluate and report their risks and impacts. That requirement can provide incentive for more sustainable actions. The following speakers will present information about successes and challenges in using regulation, legislation, and legal action to drive change for a more sustainable world.

WHEN: Tuesday, February 4, 2014 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM

WHERE: The Venture Cafe, Cambridge Innovation Center, 5th Floor, 1 Broadway, Cambridge, MA
