This episode is another in our Energy and Environment Review series, in which Ballard’s energy and environmental lawyers will address the energy evolution driven by climate change, renewable energy innovation, electrification, and energy efficiency, as consumers, generators and investors alike strive for a sustainable future. The episode features a panel discussion on the topic of Environmental Justice – what it is, the concerns on which it focuses, current policy efforts to address it, and how stakeholders might be affected by regulatory efforts in this realm.

Leading the discussion is Harry Weiss, a Partner in Ballard’s Philadelphia office who is the Practice Leader of Ballard Spahr’s Environment and Natural Resources Group, and provides an array of clients with compliance advice and representation in litigation regarding federal and state environmental regulations.

Joining Harry in the discussion are Matthew Tejada, Director of the Office of Environmental Justice in the US Environmental Protection Agency; Olivia Carpenter Glenn, Deputy Commissioner in the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, focusing on environmental justice issues; and Sean Moriarty, Deputy Commissioner of Legal, Regulatory and Legislative Affairs in the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection.
