Ballard Spahr will hold the next meeting of our Climate Change Roundtable, a series of discussions with other business representatives about the evolving legal and policy framework for addressing climate change and its operational impact on business. This meeting will focus on the emerging standards and practices for sustainability disclosures and accounting, as well as other new developments.

These invite-only roundtables provide the opportunity for participants from different sectors of the economy to share ideas and strategies for responding to the many impacts of climate change in ways that might identify new business opportunities and minimize disruption. There is no cost to participate.
