Marketing Makeover: The EU’s Green Claims Edition

The new EU legislation, particularly the Green Claims Directive, will transform the work of marketers. This directive mandates that environmental claims must be substantiated with clear, transparent, and verifiable evidence, aiming to combat greenwashing. Marketers will need to adapt by ensuring all environmental claims are accurate and backed by solid data. This shift will not only enhance consumer trust but also promote genuine sustainability practices across industries. Let’s explore these changes and prepare for a more transparent and accountable marketing landscape.
