What Environmental Policy Options Does the U.S. Have in 2018?
In a Knowledge @ Wharton public policy podcast, Dan Kammen joins Eric Orts, legal studies and business ethics professor, and director of the school’s Initiative for Global Environmental Leadership. Kammen and Orts discuss the implications of environmental policy decisions made in 2017, and consider sustainability options for businesses as well as federal and state governments in the upcoming year.
“Under the direction of former Oklahoma attorney general Scott Pruitt, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency continued to roll back various Obama-era policies as 2017 wound to a close. Wharton professor of legal studies and business ethics Eric Orts, director of the school’s Initiative for Global Environmental Leadership, and Daniel Kammen, founding director of the University of California Berkeley’s Renewable and Appropriate Energy Laboratory, recently joined the Knowledge@Wharton show on Wharton Business Radio on SiriusXM channel 111 to discuss the direction the U.S. is heading regarding environmental protection and conservation, and whether recent policy changes put U.S. businesses at a disadvantage to those in countries that support environmentally friendly policies and renewable resources.”
