Corporate Greenwashing: Are Environmental Claims Just Empty Promises?
Isaacs, Andrew , and Natàlia Costa i Coromina
Publication date: 10/1/2022, pages 1-7

Greenwashing is a term that describes the situation where a company’s environmental claims exceed what the corporation is accomplishing through its environmental efforts. Trust in corporate entitles comes into question since consumers, investors, employees, and other interested parties can’t be certain which environmental claims represent real impact on addressing climate change, and which claims are inconsequential. This case study includes examples of corporate environmental efforts. These examples and associated case study questions are designed to support students in assessing whether greenwashing is being committed by a corporation, and the form in which it may be occurring.
