GT is a proud sponsor of the National Retail Federation's 2021 Retail Law Summit. The NRF Retail Law Summit is a new two-day event designed to help in-house retail attorneys, compliance officers and HR professionals at all levels build tools and strategies to advise and guide their organizations.
Jillian C. Kirn will participate during the "Responsible retail? What to know about ESG" panel on July 15 at 2:00pm ET. The CLE-eligible panel will examine the impact of the increasing consumer and regulatory interest in Environmental, Social, and Governance (“ESG”) frameworks, standards, and reporting practices. More than ever, consumers are asking questions about sourcing material, sustainability efforts, and community impact. This panel will provide an overview of key ESG components retailers should be considering now and forecast anticipated developments, including a look at upcoming proposals from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
