Regulatory and Litigation Updates on Greenwashing and ESG Claims
The Environmental, Social and Governance (“ESG”) and sustainability movements have placed increased attention on corporate environmental benefit claims and disclosure statements.

Greenwashing can also occur in corporate disclosure statements, influencing financial analyses and investor strategy.
