Environmental Economics

Corporate Environmental Behavior and the Effectiveness of Government Interventions

This two-day workshop co-sponsored by EPA's National Center for Environmental Economics and National Center for Environmental Research highlighted results from EPA Science to Achieve Results (STAR) grants and other projects related to the understanding of corporate environmental behavior in response to environmental regulations. Investigators presented research that analyzed the compliance decisions of regulated entities, examined how regulated and non-regulated entities consider environmental costs, and determined the effectiveness of governmental interventions and voluntary initiatives at improving corporate environmental performance. The workshop featured a luncheon panel discussion on making progress towards an environmental facility research database. Each day of the workshop started with opening statements - Mike Stahl, Director of the Office of Compliance, provided remarks on the first day and Jim Gulliford, Regional Administrator of Region 7, provided remarks the second day of the workshop.
