GREENWASHING

The initial definition of greenwashing was that of purported environmentally friendly practices with a deeper purpose of increasing profit margins. Today, however, the term has taken on a broader meaning, referring to statements of exaggerated environmental benefit or unsubstantiated claims of environmental support in marketing, advertising and communications.
