This interview was recorded on July 11th, 2016. Professor Myanna Dellinger interviews Rick Reibstein about the the problems and issues surrounding the compliance and enforcement of environmental issues.
He spent almost three decades with the state of Massachusetts helping companies and others to comply with environmental rules and go beyond them to reduce the use of toxics, energy and water. He also spent a few years as an enforcement attorney for the US EPA and the state of Massachusetts, and has worked with both agencies to coordinate assistance and enforcement initiatives, so he brings an unconventional perspective to the question of enforcement.
Rick has just published a book called Developing Sustainable Environmental Responsibility.
