“Greenwashing” is a term used when an organization spends more time and money promoting itself as being green than actually taking action to be green. Here’s a really funny website that pokes fun of the Conservative government in Canada for greenwashing. The website is a satire of Environment Canada’s actual website, which is full of announcements showing that Canada’s New Government is taking environmental action. It is no wonder that Canada is not meeting its Kyoto goals. Announcing new incentive programs, such as ecoEnergy Retrofit for Homes does not accomplish anything when it is simply rebranding a program (i.e. the Energuide for Houses program) that existed under the previous government. I’m not saying that the Liberal government did a better job; I’m just saying that it’s time for the government, no matter who is in power, to actually take action instead of greenwashing.
