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!
