EU to Ban ‘Climate Neutral’ Claims by 2026

The Financial Times | 20 September 2023

The EU will ban misleading environmental claims such as “climate neutral” or “eco” by 2026, which would make the bloc the toughest region in the world in terms of its approach to public green claims. The rules will also ban claims based on emissions offsetting and green labels that are not from approved sustainability schemes. However, several proposals are likely to be dropped, such as the new rules on animal welfare and regulations aiming to create more sustainable food systems.

FAIRR’s new thematic report aims to determine whether regenerative agriculture commitments across 79 publicly listed agri-food companies are meaningful enough to deliver climate, nature and social goals.
