Greenwashing & Its Impact Upon Business? | With Emma Burlow
Many corporates have fallen prey to greenwashing and are making unsubstantiated claims to deceive consumers into believing that a company’s products are environmentally friendly or have a greater positive environmental impact than they do in reality. This in turn is fracturing their relationship with not only their stakeholders but also irreparably damaging the trust of consumers.
This webinar gives us an insight into what is greenwashing, how it is derailing business sustainability & how critical it is for companies to take meaningful and industry-appropriate steps to avoid greenwashing and achieve their ESG goals.
