Worldfavor releases Anti-Greenwashing Playbook to enhance sustainability communication
Worldfavor, the global sustainability platform since 2016, is proud to announce the release of its new Anti-Greenwashing Playbook. This comprehensive guide equips companies with the knowledge and tools to effectively communicate their sustainability efforts while avoiding misleading or false claims.
Greenwashing, the act of making exaggerated or deceptive environmental claims, is a problem in the corporate world today. A study by the European Union in 2021 found that nearly half of all environmental claims made online are exaggerated, deceptive, or false. While most companies genuinely strive to do good, they often lack the necessary expertise to communicate their sustainability initiatives accurately.
The consequence, intentional or not, can be detrimental to a company's reputation. Furthermore, it's becoming costly as regulators are increasingly taking legal action to hold companies accountable, with significant penalties being imposed in various countries.
Today, Worldfavor is pleased to announce the release of its new Anti-Greenwashing Playbook, created to help companies navigate the complexities of sustainability communication. Since being founded in 2016, Worldfavor has been enabling organizations globally to access, manage and share sustainability information.
This new Worldfavor resource offers practical advice for avoiding buzzwords, presenting genuine efforts, and identifying potential pitfalls. It covers vital aspects including greenwashing laws, a checklist of do's and don'ts, and strategies for collecting data to support claims of impact.
