5 Major Ways the Inflation Reduction Act Will Change EHS Forever
December 15 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree
The new CHIPS and Science Act is expected to spur multi-million-dollar construction projects not only in chip fabrication location but also in ancillary domestic areas like supplier facilities, technology hubs and supported community infrastructure improvements. With the promise of all this new development comes requirements for enhanced environmental due diligence. This explanatory webinar will cover:
- Looking beyond “traditional” environmental site assessments to help sellers and buyers alike develop a risk reduction strategy for mergers, acquisitions, and divestitures.
- Better identification of “hidden” environmental transactional risks, improved return on investment, and more effective risk mitigation planning & implementation.
The webinar will include a panel discussion between both legal and environmental due diligence subject matter experts to discuss how semiconductor manufacturing companies, their suppliers and other more general project types/locations should use enhanced environmental due diligence to evaluate their future risks as a result of this new legislation.
