RTRS soy nominated for ‘The Big Greenwash Award’


(so far only available in Dutch) Op 23 juni organiseert Climaxi in Brussel ‘The Big Greenwash Circus’. Dit wordt een Conferentie over valse oplossingen voor de klimaatcrisis. Als onderdeel van dit evenement wordt er een greenwash award uitgereikt. Hiervoor zijn vijf organisaties en bedrijven genomineerd. Een hiervan is de Round Table on Responsible Soy (Ronde Tafel Verantwoorde Soja). De afgelopen jaren heeft ASEED campagne gevoerd tegen dit label voor genetisch gemanipuleerde pesticide-soja. Andere genomineerden zijn VLAM (Vlaams Centrum voor Agro- en Visserijmarketing), PNB Paribas, Forest Stewardship Council (FSC label) en oliebedrijf BP.
