On June 1, 2017, President Trump announced that he is withdrawing the United States from the landmark 2015 Paris Agreement, adopted by consensus of 195 participating countries under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. While the withdrawal will not become effective under the accord’s terms until November 4, 2020, the president announced that the federal government will immediately cease all implementation of the agreement.
Join attorneys Jerry Stouck, Bernadette Rappold, and Brent Allen for a spirited, one-hour discussion and CLE on the Paris Agreement, the mechanics of withdrawing the United States from it, and the implications for American businesses, as states and localities pledge to abide by the Paris accord’s terms and corporations enact climate change policies and practices impacting supply chains. They will close with a brief discussion of how businesses can best keep pace with the American greenhouse gas regulation and policy landscape.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Understand the parameters of the Paris Agreement
  2. Discuss the mechanics of withdrawal from the Agreement
  3. Identify implications for U.S. business
  4. Suggest best practices for how businesses can stay apprised of the changing regulatory and policy landscape
