Session 3: "Too green to be true? How to manage green claims risk and other advertising quandaries that aren't going away"

Tuesday 7 December 2021, 13:00-14:00 (GMT)
Summary: The tension between taking action and being seen to take action has been front and centre recently. Join us for a discussion on the issues that just aren't going away as we delve into the cross-sector challenges of the perennial issue of "greenwashing", how to stay nimble in the world of tactical social media advertising whilst dealing with ever increasing volumes of marketing copy and why we are repeatedly seeing ASA rulings against brands and their dealings with influencers.  

With Dominic Watkins, Global Head of Consumer Sector & Katharine Mason, Senior Associate and former Director on the Board of the Committee of Advertising Practice, sister body to the ASA.

These will be fully interactive roundtable sessions, conducted virtually (over Microsoft Teams call) under the Chatham House Rule, to give you an opportunity to share your experiences, raise your concerns and ask questions, therefore places are limited. Joining details and a calendar invite will follow your RSVP.
