Put simply, ‘greenwashing’ is a misrepresentation of the sustainability credentials of a company, or of its products or services. Heightened demands on corporate sustainability compiled with elevated scrutiny from external parties make navigating the risks associated with ‘green’ claims more demanding. This webinar will discuss practical steps for how companies and boards can reduce legal and reputational exposures.
Expiry Date - Wednesday, 14 June 2023
Duration - 60
With the elevation of climate change to a key issue for shareholders, investors and value chain stakeholders, Australian companies are under increasing pressure to set greenhouse gas emission reduction targets towards 'net zero'. Recent cases demonstrate how a failure to set sufficiently ambitious targets, adequately explain targets, or credibly pursue targets, can lead to 'greenwashing' litigation risk for both companies and their boards. Join this webinar to hear from leading legal advisors on how 'greenwashing' risks commonly arise, and practical tips to manage them:
- When does 'greenwashing' risk arise?
- Setting targets – what first?
- Communicating targets – say what?
- Implementing targets – what now?
You will hear from senior legal specialists and directors to gain ideas for better practice.
