In proceedings taken by the ACCC, the Federal Court has declared that GM Holden Ltd made false and misleading claims in its “Grrrrrreen” campaign which promoted the environmentally friendly nature of its Saab range of vehicles.
V8 Supercars Australia Pty Ltd has acknowledged the ACCC's concerns that its claim that carbon emissions would be entirely offset by the planting of trees may have been misleading or deceptive and therefore a breach of section 52 of the Trade Practices Act, because there was no explanation that it is likely to take the life-time of the trees before those emissions are absorbed.
