Episode 64 — Energy & Infrastructure: How Can Companies Avoid Greenwashing Allegations and ESG Litigation Risks?

December 18, 2023
Amid increased expectations, regulations, and scrutiny, companies’ sustainability efforts face more challenges than ever before.

As companies feel heightened pressure from stakeholders to adopt environmental, social, and governance (ESG) measures, greenwashing allegations continue to rise in tandem. Complex regulatory environments in the US and across Europe increase the likelihood of enforcement actions and demands for leadership teams to validate their public statements and disclosures. Lawsuits have become a tool for holding businesses accountable for their environmental practices and claims. Companies implementing or reporting on sustainability practices must develop consistent approaches to navigating an increasingly uncertain landscape.   

In this episode of Connected With Latham, partners Sophie Lamb and Robin Hulshizer and associate Aleksandra Dulska discuss the risks, enforcement actions, and litigation shaping the trend of greenwashing, as well as the strategies that businesses can deploy to minimize scrutiny.
