National Leaders in Climate Policy & Resilience Planning, We Help Clients Anticipate and Adapt to a Changing Environment 

Climate change issues will continue to impose escalating demands on businesses for the foreseeable future.

With expertise in all the substantive areas of domestic and international environmental law implicated by the regulation and reduction of GHG emissions, Marten attorneys are at the forefront of developing climate change law and policy.

Led by former senior officials at the White House and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Marten’s team brings a science-based perspective on climate change adaptation, providing strategic counsel to energy producers, manufacturers, forestry companies, utilities, and developers on how to anticipate and plan for regulatory changes, including the need to incorporate climate impacts into permitting strategies, energy procurement, and environmental reviews. We help clients maximize the business opportunities presented by the increasing expectation of green corporate culture and sustainable operations and supply chains, as well as deliver the comprehensive resilience plans necessary to ensure that land use, sea level rise, water quality/water supply, and energy mix impacts do not affect their bottom line.
