Contingent environmental liabilities arising from hazardous waste are an increasingly material risk for businesses in the plastics and chemical, mining, oil & gas, manufacturing and heavy industry sectors. With implications for directors as well as operational, environmental, reputational and financial risks for the broader organization and community, this is an issue too big to be ignored. Understanding where your business fits into the risk profile and what you can do to manage contingent environmental liabilities will have an important impact on your organisation.

As a business leader working in the Plastics and Chemical sector, Tellus Holdings in collaboration with Gilbert + Tobin and Deloitte invite you to hear from our panel of experts as they discuss this issue and what it means for you.

With expertise across law, accounting and waste and environmental management, our panel will cover:

  • Environmental risks/contingent liabilities associated with hazardous waste – legislative requirements, business costs and the potential implications for your balance sheet.
  • Issues of liability for both an organisation and its directors.
  • Risk management methodologies.
  • Global best practice for isolating hazardous waste
  • Options for the transfer of contingent environmental liability
