Queensland Sustainability Forum – Compliance in a sustainable world

Partner Kristy Dorney recently presented at the Property Council of Australia’s inaugural Queensland Sustainability Forum.

Kristy discussed ‘Compliance in a sustainable world’, including:

  • What is greenwashing? Are you overstating your green credentials in breach of the misleading or deceptive conduct laws?
  • ASIC and the ACCC’s crackdown on greenwashing has revealed some important lessons for avoiding greenwashing in the real estate space.
  • ASIC and the ACCC’s action to date is just the start—all industries should follow suit.
  • Queensland is particularly exposed with the planning for the Olympic and Paralympic Games and the government’s commitment to delivering a 'climate positive' Games.
  • Watch this space!
