- Non-bankruptcy global environmental settlement agreements
- Ability to pay arguments, including under the EPA Civil Penalty Policy and during CERCLA cost allocation
- Requests from environmental indemnitors or other obligated parties to reduce obligations to avoid bankruptcy
- Impact of the financial downturn on meeting financial assurance requirements for environmental obligations
- Environmental issues during temporary or permanent plant shutdowns or reductions in workforce
