The Ad-Hoc Industry Natural Resource Management Group, comprised of industrial, energy and transportation companies across all major sectors is uniquely focused on the interface between natural resources (air, water, species, land) and industrial activities (manufacturing; energy exploration, use and production; minerals mining; transportation by land and sea and more). In June 2016, the Group commemorated the 28th anniversary of its founding.

Companies participating in the Ad-Hoc Industry Natural Resource Management Group are better equipped to proactively manage risks, liabilities and opportunities; reduce the potential for litigation; and save considerable time and money by leaning on the Group's resources, experience and ongoing working relationships with government authorities and many others.

The Group’s Mission Statement may be accessed here.

This website provides further information on the Group’s work, history, and roles, and we are happy to answer questions and/or provide testimonials from some of our members and our wide range of collaborators -- government, industrial associations, research and conservation organizations, law firms, consulting firms, universities and more.

If your company is one that transports oil or hazardous waste by rail, pipeline or vessel; engages in natural resource extraction operations; operates in Europe near Natura 2000 protected areas; is remediating Superfund, sediments, or other sites; or has operations that could result in an oil spill or a release of a hazardous substance in proximity to a natural resource, we invite you to contact us.

Over its many years, the Group has been instrumental in encouraging a sound practice arena, notably connected to natural resource-related liability matters. The Group has a strong track record of accomplishments, including: establishing regular communications and practice exchange with U.S. federal, state, European Union, EU Member State and other government representatives; holding periodic multi-stakeholder Symposia to provide in-depth, collaborative examination of the interface between industrial activities and natural resources; and preparing and distributing seminal documents aimed at outlining best practices, guiding principles, and general standards to aid companies and other parties in site-specific applications.

In addition to its focus on industrial company membership and its work with partnering entities, the Group also has a robust Affiliates Program comprised of law firms and consulting firms.
