“9 Environmental Challenges for US Businesses in 2014,” Corporate Counsel

In this article, Jenner & Block Partner E. Lynn Grayson and Associate Alexander J. Bandza review nine environmental-related concerns that businesses and their leaders need to be aware of in 2014.  The authors observe that corporate thinking this year will be significantly influenced by the shifting focus beyond regulatory compliance and risk management to sustainability and corporate social responsibility.  They conclude that “understanding these concerns is a step in the right direction, and U.S. businesses must remain vigilant to ensure that this litany of concerns does not translate into a negative impact on the bottom line.”
