COMPLIANCE & SUSTAINABILITY
We assist companies comply with environmental laws. We have decades of experience with California and federal environmental laws and have handled a wide range of counseling and enforcement matters.
Because California is a leader in "right to know" and consumer product initiatives -- such as Proposition 65, green chemistry, and packaging and labeling requirements -- companies nationwide are looking to understand and comply with California laws, sometimes on a proactive basis and sometimes in response to inquiries from their customers. We track developments in the field and help clients handle compliance inquiries up and down the supply chain.
For companies looking to boost their sustainability ratings, compliance with environmental laws can avoid fine and penalties and lawsuits, which can directly and negatively impact their ESG rankings. See, e.g., Dun & Bradstreet's ESG Rankings Dataset.
Through our membership in IR Global, an international consortium of law firms and accountants, and our participation in IR Global's Working Group on ESG, we provide support for ESG initiatives on both a national and global basis with access to a national and international network of attorneys and accountants with ESG expertise. EGC is IR Global's only California environmental law member.
