Regulations Against Greenwashing

Lack of robust regulations against greenwashing undermines the credibility of sustainability efforts and makes it more difficult for consumers and investors to direct their purchasing or investment decisions towards truly sustainable options.


  • The Japanese government should establish and enforce stringent regulations against greenwashing. This involves defining clear criteria for sustainable practices, implementing standardised reporting frameworks, and imposing penalties for misleading or false sustainability claims. This will ensure transparency and build trust in sustainability initiatives.
