Gund Tea: Donna Ramirez-Harrington - "Targeting for Enforcement: Mandatory Pollution Prevention (P2) Planning Under the Canadian Environmental Protection Act (CEPA) of 1990"
Time: 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Location: Johnson House Conference Room
Description: Unilateral adoption of environmental management systems, EMS, in the spirit of ISO 14001, have been shown to be effective in improving some measures of environmental quality. Thus, environmental regulators in the US and Canada are increasingly mandating the adoption of these EMS as an enforcement tool in inducing better environmental performance. This paper (1) uses alternative theories of regulation to understand how regulators target specific polluters for this type of enforcement action, and (2) employs various treatment evaluation methods (regression-based and matching-based approaches) to assess whether and how much this enforcement tool has promoted the adoption of environmental technologies and lowered chemical releases.
Gund Teas are a weekly event at the Gund Institute. Each week there is a presenter(s) that will spend anywhere from 20 to 30 minutes on their presentation, with the remainder of the time open for discussion amongst the entire group. Open to anyone interested in attending.
