Federal anti-trust lawyers are tracking more complaints of false environmental claims by businesses claiming to be net zero, Commissioner of Competition Matthew Boswell wrote in a letter to senators. Current law must be broadened to deal with fake “green” advertising, he said.

“A significant portion of the greenwashing complaints the Competition Bureau receives do not involve claims about products but rather more general or forward looking environmental claims about a business or brand as a whole, e.g. claims about being ‘net zero’ or ‘carbon neutral by 2030,’” Commissioner Boswell wrote the Senate national finance committee.
