Greenwashing and Other ESG Pitfalls: What Corporate Lawyers Need to Know about Environmental, Social, and Governance Statements
Watch On Demand
Hosted by Thomson Reuters
Your business partners and stakeholders want – in many cases need – to report on the company’s Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance (ESG) progress, in mandated financial statements and many other places, from sustainability reports to press releases. But each of those statements brings new opportunities and risks for your business.
Accurate and inspiring ESG statements can provide your company with immense benefits; incorrect or unattainable statements could open the door to civil litigation, wide-scale regulatory investigations, and major reputational harm.
In this second of two webinars giving practical guidance on current ESG best practices for in-house lawyers, Thomson Reuters experts will discuss the current state of ESG statements, with an emphasis on EU and US regulation. Topics will include:
- Greenwashing and accusations of greenwashing
- The difference between mandatory and publicity statements
- Triggers of regulator interest
- Scope of regulatory investigations
- ESG Ratings and how they’re being used
- And more….
The webinar will be broadcast globally on October 6, 2022 10:00 AM CT. Sign up now and view live or on-demand any time afterward.
