Baker Botts’ Environmental, Safety and Incident Response group recently launched a video series on “Building your Company’s Environmental Justice Toolkit and the ACELAS Framework.” Baker Botts developed ACELAS as a legal risk mitigation and organizational tool for companies. The ACELAS pillars can help a company evaluate the legal, regulatory, and policy issues raised by increased consideration of environmental justice in permitting, enforcement, and litigation proceedings. Not every company, and not every facility, will encounter environmental justice issues, as such ACELAS – Acknowledge, Commit, Engage, Learn, Act, and Share – is an adaptable and scaleable legal resource.
In the second video, Baker Botts Partner Anne Carpenter focuses on the "A" in ACELAS, which stands for Acknowledge.
