Podcast: ESG Environmental Discussion with Tom Grever

From Main Street to boardrooms across America, stakeholders, clients and customers are asking more from their preferred companies, particularly in the environmental area. Whether you’re a seasoned general counsel for a large company or part of an in-house legal team, companies need to be aware of rising legal trends, from greenwashing claims to consideration for carbon reduction initiatives. In 2020 alone, more than 1,000 companies pledged to reach net-zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by a certain date in accordance with the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change’s (UNFCCC) Paris Agreement. In episode two of E2 – Examining ESG + litigation risks, Shook Chair Madeleine McDonough speaks to Shook Partner Tom Grever, an environmental lawyer, about these issues for companies.
