Energy, Equity, and Environmental Justice in the Biden Administration

SESSION DETAILS

During the presidential transition, the incoming Biden Administration made equity and climate priority areas. It has now released executive orders, new regulations, and guidance aimed at climate, equity, and environmental justice. Experts discuss what has changed and what planners can expect. In the last nine months, the Biden Administration has been busy advancing policies designed to deliver on two key priorities announced during the campaign and presidential transition: social equity and climate change. From executive orders to regulations, federal officials are rapidly changing the landscape on issues like environmental justice. The new Justice40 initiative and related actions are both providing new tools for planners and changing how the federal government works with local and state partners.
