In the context of the evolving discourse on ‘net zero’ ambitions at European and international levels, the EEB – among a collective of 27 NGOs – draws attention to the risk of carbon neutrality efforts becoming an opportunity for industry greenwashing through the use of false and misleading ‘green claims’.
