From False Promises to Real Solutions
In the fight against the climate crisis, biodiversity loss, and ecosystem destruction, discerning real solutions from corporate greenwashing has become increasingly critical. Friends of the Earth Europe has released a new guide to help activists, policymakers and interested citizens navigate through the maze of false promises made by corporations and bought by governments.
Our guide provides a checklist to put false promises in food, farming & biodiversity – from carbon offsetting to new GMOs, biodiversity offsetting to lab-grown meat – to the test of environmental sustainability and social justice.
The checklist is designed to help empower people and re-centre the debate to ensure that we put our energy into real solutions, not tools promoted by corporations to further their own interests and that ultimately perpetuate harm rather than address the root causes of the crises we’re facing.
