Event information

Date: Wed 29 May 2024 Time: 3.30pm - 8.00pm Venue: Castrén & Snellman, Eteläesplanadi 14, Helsinki, 00130, Finland

Now in its third edition, the Green Summit Finland 2024 will bring together leading in-house counsel and sustainability specialists to explore how the legal sector across the country and the Nordic region can best engage with sustainability, ESG, and climate action.

In two incisive panel sessions, key thought leaders will explore the role of lawyers in navigating the pressing issues currently surrounding corporate sustainability, ESG, and the green transition. Attendees will hear keen insight, experiences, and best practices on topics including how legal teams can manage emerging greenwashing risks and adapt to the requirements of the sustainability due diligence landscape.

The event will also feature the opportunity to contribute to the discussion through Q&A sessions with our speakers and through networking discussions with fellow attendees, where the conversation on vital sustainability topics will carry on over drinks and canapes.
