London, UK – April 18, 2018 – Element will host its 20th annual Environmental seminar on 27 April, 2018 at the Delta Edmonton South Conference Center in Edmonton, Canada. As environmental regulations take an ever greater role in business, organizations are facing growing pressure to ensure that their activities adhere to the highest standards of environmental management.

With a focus on regulations and guidelines, speakers from government and industry will address the changes, challenges and issues in the environmental sector. A series of presentations from government bodies, including the British Columbia Oil and Gas Commission and Alberta Environment and Parks, will provide critical regulatory updates to the energy industry. The seminar will tackle hot-button issues ranging from pipelines, wells and blowouts, stakeholder engagement, emerging contaminants, and site-specific environmental risk assessments.

This event will be of interest to anyone looking to keep abreast of the new guidelines and legislations facing the industry, as well as those wanting to earn professional development credits towards their designations.
