New independent group to help tackle 'greenwashing'

New independent group to help tackle 'greenwashing'

9 June 2021

Ben Caldecott is among the members of the Green Taxonomy Advisory Group (CTAG) launched by the UK government. The new expert group will support investors, consumers and businesses to make green financial decisions.


CTAG will advise on standards for green investment in an effort to provide clearer information to help companies and individuals make informed green choices and support investment in sustainable projects. The resulting framework will assist in identifying supposedly green investment products which make unsubstantiated or exaggerated claims about being environmentally friendly.
