Satisfying Consumption: Trade and the Environment
Thursday 9th April 2015 • Cass Business School • 6.5 CPD Hours

Consumption and trade continue to increase, creating unprecedented environmental challenges. The controversial Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) currently being negotiated behind closed doors threatens to hand more power to corporations and lower regulatory standards between the EU and the US, at untold environmental cost. As we enter a new era of trade, do we know the full implications of our actions?

Join us at the 9th Annual PIEL Conference for an engaging day of panels, distinguished speakers and networking opportunities organised by a Committee of environmental law students from London universities.
