Environmental Compliance Network

Overview

The Environmental Compliance Network (ECN) provides a forum for leading retail environmental compliance executives to hear from experts and engage in peer-to-peer benchmarking on implementation, management, and oversight of retail federal and state environmental compliance programs.

Topics covered include the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), the Clean Air and Clean Water Acts, the Emergency Planning and Community Right to Know Act (EPCRA), Department of Transportation (DOT) and Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) regulations, storage tank regulations, process safety management, green chemistry initiatives and state and local environmental regulations.  

ECN participants also explore 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 to reduce environmental impacts as well as regulatory risk.

The ECN hosts bimonthly focused benchmarking calls and an annual meeting held in conjunction with RILA’s Environmental Advocacy Committee and Zero Waste Network. The ECN also conducts benchmarking surveys and helps inform the Retail Compliance Center’s development of new environmental compliance tools and resources.  

For information on RILA's Environmental Compliance Network, contact Susan Kirsch, Vice President, Regulatory Affairs at RILA, at susan.kirsch@rila.org. Network members can access recent ECN content and resources below.
