The biodiversity and climate crisis is becoming ever more urgent. Hardly any concrete political measures have been taken, but instead just voluntary initiatives have been promoted by corporations and organisations. Barely anyone can afford not to communicate on sustainability, but those measures have neither worked nor are sufficiently relevant to protect our planet. More and more actors are using professional Greenwashing to reassure us with false solutions, so that "green growth" continues to be legitimized. These are “sustainability initiatives” as offsets, certification schemes or cooperation with non-profit organisations.
In order to stop the climate crisis and to protect biodiversity, we need to structurally change our way of producing and consuming food, energy and raw materials.To do so, we need compulsory legal frameworks.
