We are pleased to announced that Lynn L. Bergeson will moderate a 'quick teleconference' program sponsored by the American Bar Association (ABA) Section of Environment, Energy, and Resources entitled 'Selling Green: A Concise Overview of the FTC's Proposed Guides for the Use of Environmental Marketing Claims.' The November 16, 2010, teleconference will explore the Federal Trade Commission's (FTC) proposed revisions to its Guides for the Use of Environmental Marketing Claims (Green Guides), consider the reasoning behind the FTC's decision to propose them as it did, and discuss the legal, practical, and business competition issues that arise with application of the Green Guides in the real world. Speakers include:
- Anne Johnson, Director, Sustainable Packaging Coalition;
- Laura Koss, FTC; and
