Sustainability with substance – know your risk in relation to environmental claims
Please join us for our upcoming webinar with Iona Silverman, our London IP & Media Partner.
The one-hour webinar will focus on how our planet is facing an environmental crisis, putting huge political and consumer pressure on all businesses to be as sustainable as possible.
This is a hot topic for the UK regulators, and they are about to get teeth: the Digital Markets, Competition and Consumers Bill is set to grant the CMA the right to impose fines of up to 10% of global turnover for breaches of consumer law. Brands in all industries want to shout about how green they are; this webinar is about mitigating risk and getting your messaging right.
Date: Thursday 20 July 2023
Time: 11:00am – 12:00pm
We will discuss:
- What is greenwashing?
- The risk of getting your messaging wrong
- The rules in the UK – what you can do, what you can’t do and the grey area in between
- Brands that have got it right
- Common pitfalls to avoid
- Certification marks – what they are and how can you use them
- Directors’ duties
- Practical considerations all brands should be aware of
The webinar will include a Q&A session where Iona Silverman will be available to answer any questions you may have.
