The task of managing environmental risks and liabilities and attending to environmental regulatory challenges and beyond compliance mandates has never been more critical to the success of commercial and industrial enterprises than it is today. Expanding domestic and international environmental regulatory regimes are creating new compliance obligations for companies operating in a global marketplace. Truly global environmental issues, such as climate change and water scarcity, have increased environmental awareness and activism and are changing how companies operate. Sustainability initiatives are also transforming the way in which companies define environmental performance and compliance.
