Environmental legal issues present an ongoing compliance challenge for all businesses. Regulators around the globe continue to place new and more stringent demands on businesses to meet enhanced environmental standards. This is driven by a range of global trends, such as increased chemical regulation, product stewardship and environmental accountability, and public concerns around climate change and sustainability. In the U.S., the federal government appears poised to reverse that trend by rolling back environmental regulation, thereby ushering in an era of regulatory uncertainty and patchwork regulation by and among the individual states.
