Australian Competition and Consumer Commission Fights Environmental Deceptions
The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) has begun taking action against false environmental claims made by Australian firms. A study found that around 40 percent of claims made may be untrue.
The ACCC protects consumer and business rights. The organization has said that it will check that companies only make statements that are “clear, defined, limited in their claims, and always have strong verification materials.”
