Climate Change & Resource Conservation
The growing effort to contend with greenhouse gas emissions and climate change is constantly creating new challenges and opportunities. The Climate Change and Resource Conservation Group reflects the firm's commitment to aid existing and future clients in navigating new rules, regulations and acceptable business practices as well as seizing upon new business opportunities that arise out of these efforts.
Controlling greenhouse gas emission, mitigating the effects of climate change and adapting to a changing environment is occurring in public and private institutions at all levels of government with new initiatives and novel ideas arriving with regularity. Goldberg Kohn recognizes that these can affect the traditional business practices and norms that the firm's clients are used to following, meaning that they must consider new or modified business models.
The members of the Climate Change and Resource Conservation Group combine their expertise in a variety of traditional areas, including real estate, corporate, finance and tax, with their knowledge of these emerging legal mandates and business and consumer preferences to guide and advise clients in areas such as renewable energy generation and distribution, tax credits, debt and equity finance, capital formation and structuring, "green" marketing, and clean technology.
