The Green Lie film trailer

Members of the European Parliament Thomas Waitz (Greens/EFA), Maria Noichl (S&D) and Fern have the pleasure to invite you to the Belgian Premiere of the award winning documentary “The Green Lie”.

Our consumption of meat, snacks, cosmetics and biofuel drives deforestation and land-grabbing worldwide. Companies tell us that it can be prevented by buying sustainable and fair products. But is this true?

“The Green Lie” takes a critical look at companies’ greenwashing strategies and tells us how they can be countered. It will be followed by a discussion about what the EU can do.

This event has been made possible with the financial assistance of the European Union, the UK Department for International Development and the Ford Foundation. The opinions given at the event can in no way be taken to reflect the views of the European Union, the UK Government or the Ford Foundation.




Environmentally friendly electric cars, sustainably produced food products, fair production processes: Hurray! If everything the corporations tell us is true, we can save the world through our purchasing decisions alone. This is a popular and dangerous lie. 

Are the industrys "green products nothing more than a sales strategy?

In his new documentary film, Werner Boote and environmental expert Kathrin Hartmann show us how we can protect ourselves. They chat together, they agree to disagree and ultimately, they bring freshness to a never-ending debate.
