Consumers are now, more than ever, making purchasing decisions on environmental grounds. We'll be investigating a number of businesses for making potentially false or misleading environmental claims.
The expansion of digital platforms in Australia has brought benefits, but also created risks and harms that our current consumer and competition laws are not always able to address. We're examining these issues as part of inquiries we conduct and law enforcement cases.
