Here's a brief description of the presentation.
More and more companies are engaging in environmental and sustainability reporting. Some companies are required to prepare reports under federal laws, such as EPCRA and OSHA. Others voluntarily report on environmental and sustainability efforts due to customer and shareholder pressure. Companies also comment on their sustainability efforts in press releases and during various environmental permitting processes.
This presentation will focus on ethical issues related to environmental and sustainability reporting that attorneys and consultants may face. Should ethical standards be different if a reporting program is voluntary than if the program is legally mandatory? What is the role of the attorney and the consultant in ensuring a client’s public statements about its environmental and sustainability reporting are accurate? These questions, and others, will be explored through the use of case studies.
