Environmental Compliance Committee


RILA’s Environmental Compliance Committee is composed of leading retail practitioners who are charged with implementing compliance programs for the following federal statutes and regulations: the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), the Clean Air and Clean Water Acts, the Emergency Planning and Community Right to Know Act (EPCRA), and some Department of Transportation (DOT) and Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) rules and regulations. They may also lead or oversee compliance with storage tank regulations, process safety management, green chemistry initiatives and a variety of state and local regulations primarily focused on solid waste.  

The Environmental Compliance Committee provides leading retailers a forum to benchmark and hear from experts regularly on rotating topics related to the implementation, management, and oversight of environmental compliance programs. Discussions also consider the role of innovation and technology in developing new approaches to compliance and operational practices that can bridge the gap between environmental compliance and sustainability. The committee meets in-person up to twice per year, conducts benchmarking surveys, informs the development of new tools and resources for the RILA Retail Compliance Center, and has quarterly, focused benchmarking calls.
