Corporate Environmental Forum

The ORC Corporate Environmental Forum (CEF) is an independent forum for the in-depth examination of environmental issues and regulations that play an important role in the implementation of member companies’ environmental management programs. CEF addresses the mutual concerns of industry, government agencies and the public sector. An exchange of views with high-ranking EPA officials is a regular feature of the meetings, as are discussions among member companies and experts on best practices in environmental management and compliance. Emerging issues, such as nanotechnology, REACH and Sarbanes-Oxley legislation and their implications for corporate EHS programs are considered by the CEF.


  • Four meetings per year that provide presentations by environmental-issues experts from the public and private sectors, as well as a forum for an exchange of information and joint problem solving with other professionals in the environmental field
  • Personal contacts with senior government officials and subject experts
  • Participation in rule-making and enforcement programs through task forces (which draw on the collective skills and experience of ORC member companies)
  • Individual consultations by telephone
  • Periodic mailings on current environmental concerns of the public and private sectors and alerts on fast-breaking issues
  • A monthly newsletter summarizing critical activities in the environmental field
