Environmental Justice is an important topic that increasingly is being discussed when thinking about the transition our industry is facing.  This panel will discuss how an emerging focus on EJ issues can and should translate into the daily decisions made around the energy industry.  As members of the bar counseling clients and policy makers taking steps to effectuate changes, this panel will provide insights to keep in mind and remind us that we are part of the key inputs shaping what the future looks like.
