Environmental Justice in Energy Development and Transition - EBA's Rocky Mountain Chapter Annual Meeting

June 24, 2021


Join Maranda Compton as she presents as part of a panel discussion on environmental justice considerations in energy development under the Biden Administration during the Energy Bar Association's Rocky Mountain Chapter's annual meeting.

From EBA's website: 

Environmental justice considerations have jumped to the forefront of national energy development policies, having first gained traction on the national stage in 1994 with President Bill Clinton’s Executive Order 12898, Federal Actions to Address Environmental Justice in Minority Populations and Low-Income Populations. Now, President Biden’s Executive Order 14008, Tackling the Climate Crisis at Home and Abroad calls on federal agencies to achieve, secure and deliver environmental justice by incorporating it throughout their missions. Recognizing the significant swaths of our nation’s federal lands are located in the Rocky Mountain states, practitioners working in energy development – whether traditional or renewable – must be cognizant of the various consultation and compliance requirements and policy drivers, all of which are intensified by considerations of the impacts of energy transitions. This panel will explore these renewed and strengthened policies and discuss best practices and considerations for practitioners working in energy development and energy transition.
