As executive and legislative initiatives focus more on environmental protection, accounting rules have also been changing to achieve more transparency in terms of how companies treat and estimate environmental liabilities. Many questions arise: How will different industries now need to account for their practices? Will they have to spend higher for environmental expenses? Will this impact market capitalization? What can you do to increase transparency, conform to current standards, and alleviate risks?

This webcast produced by The Knowledge Group, will discuss how common accounting problems relate to environmental issues and how FAS 5, Accounting for Contingencies, can be applied to regulating environmental liabilities. This event will provide critical, timely updates and should be considered a must attend event for anyone interested in Accounting for Contingencies and Environmental Liabilities issues. The regulations affect companies of all sizes. This event is highly recommended for companies who have any environmental risk exposure and for companies that may be involved in M&A activity in the near future.
