German environmental NGO files greenwashing claim against BP

Share

Key facts:

The NGO Environmental Action Germany (Deutsche Umwelthilfe (DUH)) filed a claim against BP Europa SE in relation to advertising statements concerning “climate neutral” products and services.

These include claims that car dealerships where customers are offered the opportunity to neutralise their CO2 emission are “climate neutral”.

DUH alleges that these claims provide insufficient information about why the dealerships are said to be “climate neutral” and what BP is doing to cut down on or compensate its CO2 emissions.
