Emergency Planning and Response

Natural Capital Knowledge is Power (Equals Offense)

The most comprehensive planning in the world does not always prevent the occurrence of an accidental incident.  However, comprehensive planning can serve to minimize environmental liability as a result of an incident.  Additionally, being in possession of critical baseline data can prevent inappropriate or inaccurate assignment of environmental liability because of an incident.  Integrating natural capital into incident planning is a productive step towards managing risks, environmental impacts and liability.
