Building on the Baker-Polito Administration’s strong leadership to mitigate and adapt to climate change, on September 16, 2016, Governor Baker signed an Executive Order which lays out a comprehensive approach to further reduce greenhouse gas emissions, safeguard residents, municipalities, and businesses from the impacts of climate change, and build a more resilient Commonwealth. The Order, Establishing an Integrated Climate Change Strategy for the Commonwealth, represents the collaboration between the Office of the Governor, the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs, the Executive Office of Public Safety and Security, and key state, local, and environmental stakeholders.
For this EBC Climate Change program, EOEEA Undersecretary Ned Bartlett will review key aspects of the Governor’s executive order and discuss major implementation issues. Undersecretary Bartlett will also take this opportunity to introduce Kathleen Theoharides, the new Director of Climate and Global Warming Solutions for the Commonwealth.
Response Panel: Following Undersecretary Bartlett’s presentation, Bob Cox, Vice Chair of Programming for the EBC and Partner at Bowditch & Dewey, LLP, will moderate a panel of thought leaders. The panel will respond to Undersecretary Bartlett’s comments and address issues of concern to the EBC membership and their clients.
