Consumers are increasingly concerned about the environment and climate change, resulting in growing consumer demand for products and services that consider and manage their environmental impacts. At the same time, more investors and board members are making risk and investment decisions based on Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) factors, relying on the information collection and reporting that is central to ESG.

Join Richard Butler, Joanna Vince, and Raeya Jackiw as they discuss key legislation and advertising standards for environmental products and services, lessons learned from recent greenwashing cases, and corporate strategies for limiting liability and reputational risk.
