The featured guests offer their insights into the challenging environmental issues facing corporations today.

The Environmental Protection Agency’s Office of Enforcement and Compliance Assurance (OECA) develops the Agency’s national strategy to enforce compliance with federal environmental statutes. Led by assistant administrator, David M. Uhlmann, OECA sets national enforcement priorities, and coordinates with EPA regions and the U.S. Department of Justice to address environmental noncompliance, which can include civil and criminal actions. In this episode, Mr. Uhlmann joins Justin Savage to discuss OECA’s national and enforcement compliance initiatives for fiscal years 2024–2027, environmental justice, per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances, and climate enforcement goals.
