2SER: Greenwashing in Energy

Consumer protection body the ACCC has released a report comparing the green claims of nearly 250 businesses across sectors including cars, food and cosmetics. 57 per cent of 247 businesses were identified in the ACCC report were identified as making concerning claims. Energy providers were among the worst offenders, with 16 of 25 businesses identified as making concerning claims.

The Public Interest Advocacy Centre (PIAC) is one of the consumer and legal organisations in support of better protections for consumers as they navigate energy markets. See PIAC’s submission to the Senate Committee on Environment & Comms here.

Ellen Tilbury, Senior Solicitor at PIAC joined 2SER Breakfast to discuss solutions to help fix the issue and give consumers a clearer picture.
