The Biden Administration’s Focus on Environmental Justice and What that Means for Ports
Gulf Ports Association Fall Meeting
November 4, 2021
Partners Bill Jackson and Will Petit, senior associate Lauren Shah, and associate Maria Pimienta attended the Fall Meeting of the Gulf Ports Association on November 4, 2021 in Houston, Texas. Partner Will Petit presented on “The Biden Administration’s Focus on Environmental Justice and What that Means for Ports.” As one of the administration’s top environmental priorities, environmental justice can lead to increased scrutiny of ports by environmental regulators, as they tend to be co-located with environmental justice communities. Will identified ways ports can prepare for such scrutiny, such as evaluating recordkeeping practices and preparing for inspections.
