On 10 January 2023, ALFI provided a targeted response to the ESAs Call for evidence on better understanding greenwashing.
Via this consultation, the ESAs intend to gather input from stakeholders in particular on how to understand the key features, drivers and risks associated with greenwashing. Obtaining a more granular understanding of greenwashing shall help to inform policy making and supervision and help to foster the reliability of sustainability-related claims.
In its targeted response, ALFI focused on proposing a definition of greenwashing whose main characteristic should be intent. Based on the definition, complementary examples on what should not be considered as greenwashing were provided.
