Ascending the Summit of Climate Change, ESG, Energy Law and Environmental Enforcement

Join us in Ottawa on May 4 - 5, 2023 for the 2023 NEERLS Summit for an important discussion on the latest developments and emerging trends in energy and environmental law.

Hear from an expert faculty of leading environmental and energy lawyers from across Canada who will examine and discuss key areas of climate change, ESG, federal regulations and enforcement, and major energy projects, including:

  • The right to a clean, healthy environment
  • COP27 (Climate Change) and COP15 (Biodiversity)
  • Climate change planning, adaptation, and disclosure
  • Renewable, distributed and clean energy
  • The ABCs of ESG
  • Federal environmental updates and enforcement
  • Environmental and impact assessments
  • Canada’s new Fisheries Act
  • Hot topics from coast-to-coast-to-coast
  • Environmental (in)justice in Canada

 As an added bonus, you will also have the unique opportunity to tour the Zibi redevelopment waterfront lands in downtown Ottawa - a sustainable community endorsed as a global leader in the adoption of the One Planet Living sustainability framework.

Register now to gain valuable knowledge and insights for your practice, while networking with environmental and energy law colleagues from across Canada.
