Overburdened communities continue to bear the brunt of impacts related to a changing climate. These communities experience cumulative effects on their health and livelihoods that compound over time. Climate justice and environmental justice are intertwined and integral to enterprise-wide planning for industrial operations and building trust within communities. From manufacturing to construction, it is crucial that harder-to-abate industries incorporate climate justice across their operations to help ensure a sustainable and equitable future.
Please join Tanya C. Nesbitt (Moderator-Thompson Hine) Chris Whitehead (ESI), Sunny Fleming (ESRI), and Christian Braneon (Carbon Direct) for this informative event as we define climate justice and environmental justice, discuss potential framework approaches, walk through a few case studies to show the importance of mapping community impacts, and plot a path forward to minimize the risk of those impacts.
