Food Industry Association Conference: ESG Considerations for Your Business

Monday, May 23, 2022
02:40 PM - 03:35 PM Eastern Daylight Time

As companies implement environmental, social, and governance (ESG) business practices, potential for class action lawsuits increases. This session will cover current and emerging ESG-related class action risks, including claims of sustainability and other environmental initiatives, fair trade, employee welfare, and animal welfare. We will discuss evolving class claims and theories advanced by the plaintiffs’ bar, suggest best practices and potential mitigation techniques, and offer thoughts about what may be coming around the corner.

CLE credit: CLE credits will be awarded for this conference, pending state approval.
