EBC Regional Environmental Leadership Summit
Transitioning to the Carbon and Green Economy: Strategy Discussion
Exploring the Future Role of the State and Federal Regulatory Agencies

Forward thinking business leaders are recognizing climate change and sustainability as critical issues as they manage their companies and look to innovate, create value and build competitive advantage. The government must adjust to this new model and take a leadership role to encourage and support this new green economy. Moving away from a command and control strategy, what will be the constructive, supportive role of the US federal and state environmental and energy agencies?

This is the first of a two part series that will focus on the transition to the Green Economy. The first part will focus on the role of government and the second party will focus on the role of business.

Leading off with a presentation on Climate Change and Business Opportunities, this interactive program will seek to elicit from US EPA Regional Administrator Robert Varney and New England state environmental agency commissioners their viewpoints on the future role of the regulatory agencies in the green economy. What will be the focus of future  environmental  and energy priorities? Will there be more of a focus on regional approaches to energy and environmental regulation and policy? The speakers will also be asked to take a longer view.

Participants:
Robert Varney, Regional Administrator, US EPA New England
Thomas Burack, Commissioner, New Hampshire DES
Laurie Burt, Commissioner, Massachusetts DEP
Michael Sullivan, Director, Rhode Island DEM
Amey Marrella, Deputy Commissioner, Connecticut DEP
David P. Littell, Commissioner, Maine DEP (Invited)
