In today's global economy, it is essential for a corporation to understand the environmental laws of a foreign country in which it is doing business or seeks to do business. Equally important to a corporation is understanding climate change and managing its impacts. For a handy resource that addresses these rapidly evolving issues, turn to Mastering Legal Matters: How Climate Change and International Environmental Issues Influence the Real Estate Business, which contains the following chapters:
• International Environmental Issues examines environmental law in the international context, which is important in business transactions as environmental regulation becomes more and more transnational in character. Coverage includes discussions of international controls on wastes, radioactive materials, and chemicals; European Union environmental law and policy; environmental risks associated with investing in Eastern, South Eastern and Central Europe; and environmental issues and laws in China. Practical guidance is also provided to help reduce the risks inherent in foreign real estate and business transactions.
• Global Climate Change and Its Impact on Business discusses the legal impacts of climate change on business, including the risks and opportunities, so that corporations can strategically position themselves to best manage the impacts of climate change. Toward this end, the chapter provides an overview of the current state of climate change policy and its impact on business transactions, an analysis and insight into regulatory initiatives to regulate greenhouse gases and corresponding carbon markets, and an analysis of climate change-related litigation.
