ACCC to scrutinise green claims more closely

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) will be closely scrutinising businesses making environmental and sustainability claims in the 2022/23 fiscal year.  This includes claims about consumer goods, manufacturing, the energy sector, and carbon neutrality.

“Many consumers are increasingly considering the environmental impact of the products and services they buy. We are aware of growing concerns that some businesses are falsely promoting environmental or green credentials to capitalise on these consumer preferences,” said ACCC Chair, Rod Sims.

“We are also seeing businesses incurring the costs of genuine environmentally friendly manufacturing processes face unfair competition from businesses making misleading environmental and sustainability claims without incurring the same costs.”
