Why this summit

This conference reacts to the increasing number of greenwashing cases both seen in the court of law and the court of public opinion. Future Bridge has assembled a group of prominent industry leaders to address the major legal risks associated with greenwashing and provide best practices companies can adopt to mitigate them. The conference is designed for industry leaders in sectors that are particularly susceptible to public opinion and subject to green regulations, including Energy, Heavy Machinery, Cosmetics, Food, and others. During this event, established legal professionals across multiple sectors will get to exchange ideas and experiences through reviewing related case studies and legal practices.
The summit will offer guidance and direction to ensure your company is on the right path to adopting new practices that will reduce your company’s legal risks associated with greenwashing. The program will provide executives and legal representatives from selected industries with opportunities to network, exchange ideas, and benefit from insights into ways to successfully prevent liabilities for misleading sustainability advertising.

The time is now

As the global concern for the environment grows and governments enact stricter regulations, businesses must find new ways to ensure that their operations remain compliant. It is no secret that the number of greenwashing court cases in the EU has increased since the implementation of the Commission’s legal measures to combat climate change. Similarly, the revisions of the EU directives on advertising and commercial practices will undoubtedly result in the appearance of an even more profound regulatory landscape for organizations across a variety of industries. Most importantly, as consumer behavior has evolved over the last decade, trust and reputation have become key considerations in purchasing decisions. To meet the changing needs of the market, a company must continue to adjust its brand image to reflect environmental concerns. As regulations increase, companies with poor environmental records may find themselves facing increasingly expensive and damaging lawsuits. Thus, it is important for businesses to understand how to mitigate their environmental liabilities.
