SustainableProsperity.ca will host a webcast on Monday, 28 June 2010, from 12:20-2:00 p.m. EST on “The Porter Hypothesis at 20: How Can Environmental Regulation Enhance Innovation and Competitiveness?

The webcast will feature keynote speaker Prof Michael Porter of Harvard University (seen by many as the world’s top competitiveness expert), followed by an International Experts Panel chaired by Cassie Doyle, Deputy Minister, Natural Resources Canada, with Prof Daniel Esty (Yale University), Prof Bernard Sinclair-Desgagné (HEC Montréal) and Prof Mikael Skou-Andersen (European Environment Agency).  They will discuss how environmental regulations can be designed to boost innovation and competitiveness.

After the keynote and panellists, there will be a Q&A period, with opportunities for those participating by webcast to pose their questions.

For an article describing the implications of the “Porter Hypothesis” to the practice of environmental compliance, please see this chapter introduction from Making Law Work. A background paper, Porter Hypothesis at 20: Chairs Paper, is also available from SustainableProsperity that summarizes international research on the Porter Hypothesis.
