Law school examines sustainability issues at summit

(April 14, 2010) Legal, business and environmental leaders will gather at Seattle University School of Law for the Northwest Sustainability Summit Friday, April 16.

This seminar will provide substantive overview on the legal and practical implications of recent and expected changes in sustainability-related state and federal regulations. Passage of state laws regarding LEED® (Washington State was the first to mandate that all state projects meet LEED silver requirements), and federal tax incentives in the areas of Brownfields redevelopment and green energy development, provide new economic opportunities and set the stage for new business practices. This program will bring together leading industry professionals to explore this rapidly emerging area of law.

Sessions will cover topics such as the art of sustainability, corporate social responsibility and renewable energy innovations.
