2nd Annual Mitigating Greenwashing Risk the Legal Counsel’s Role in Compliance Management

Hotel Venue: Novotel Brussels City Centre

About the summit

The event will focus on the development and implementation of legal and compliance practices to mitigate and manage legal risks associated with greenwashing claims, as well as gaining practical experience in dispute settlement and litigation.

FORMAT
At this summit, the in-house counsels are in the spotlight. The aim of the gathering is to provide maximum networking opportunities to share perspectives and practical experiences to support the activities of corporate legal and compliance teams. As the topics addressed at the summit can be of sensitive nature, the Chatham House rules apply.

WHY THIS SUMMIT
This conference reacts to the increasing number of greenwashing cases seen both in the courts of law and the courts of public opinion. Future Bridge has assembled a group of prominent industry leaders to address the major legal risks associated with greenwashing and provide examples of best practice which companies can adopt to mitigate these threats. The conference is designed for senior corporate legal professionals from all
industry sectors and particularly those most susceptible to public opinion and subject to green regulation, including Energy, Heavy Machinery, Cosmetics, Food, and others. During this event, established legal professionals across multiple sectors will exchange ideas and experiences through the examination of important case studies and legal practices. The summit will provide guidance and direction to ensure your company is on the right path to adopting practice that will reduce your company’s legal risks associated with greenwashing.
