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
Via Zoom

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.
