K2 Launches Certification Against Investment Greenwashing

Financial-crimes advisory firm K2 Integrity Holdings is launching an anti-greenwashing certification for investment firms as regulators crack down on false claims about investment products by money managers. 

The certification is meant to verify that the firms deliver on the environmental, social and governance targets they advertise to individuals, pensions and other investors. K2 will use disclosures from the companies they analyze and its own investigators’ research, according to a product presentation reviewed by The Wall Street Journal.
