Environmental claims


Businesses need to provide accurate, truthful and clear information on all product labelling and packaging. This also applies to all advertising and marketing literature. Environmental claims must not mislead and are required to be substantiated with credible evidence.

The overall presentation of the product or service needs to be considered when making environmental claims. For example, any endorsements by environmental organisations must be accurate and truthful.
