NEW YORK — Stradley Ronon partner Steven D. Feldman served as a speaker at an event hosted by the European American Chamber of Commerce’s New York chapter (EACCNY) on February 27 in the firm’s New York office. The discussion, “First You Need to Spot It to Stop It! Managing Greenwashing Risks in the Financial Industry,” focused on challenges in implementing existing Sustainable Finance related rules in both the European Union and the United States and on  addressing potential new regulations.

Steve and fellow panelists covered key guidance applicable to EU and U.S. asset managers, including the current legal framework, challenges in integrating climate risks in corporate reporting, how companies can improve the way they measure and manage climate risks, how private litigants and government regulators are targeting climate-related misinformation and best practices in navigating greenwashing risks.
