  • Environmental lawyers have launched an unprecedented complaint against BP for “greenwashing” its image with an advertising blitz that promotes the oil company’s environmental credentials.
  • The complaint is the first to be made to the OECD guidelines about a fossil fuel company’s alleged greenwashing.
  • ClientEarth is therefore calling on the government to implement tobacco-style warnings on fossil fuel adverts warning people about the dangers.
