With scrutiny on lenders’ risk management policies intensifying, more and more community banks are writing their first policies or updating old ones. The OCC just raised the bar for the banks it regulates with the August release of expanded guidelines for environmental risk management that bring their policy requirements in line with those of the FDIC. What are the critical components that should be in every policy? What elements are common to most institution’s policies? How does your institution measure up to industry best practices? How is policy administered across organizations?
Join us for this webinar as seasoned insiders selected from the ranks of a mid-sized bank and small community lender share their experiences in writing and updating environmental policies. Learn what these experts are doing to protect their institutions from environmental risk exposure, and the dangers that lenders face by not have adequate policies in place to protect them from financial and legal liability.
