GREENWASHINg

Greenwashing is misleading the public to believe that a company or entity is doing more to protect the environment than it actually is. When a business brand positioning or public engagements are not aligned with its values, strategy or actions when it comes to protecting the environment, it creates greenwashing and reputational risks for the business. At COP27, Secretary-General Guterres said we must have zero tolerance for greenwashing.
