ASA bans renewable fuels ad

The ad which claimed that biofuels were a sustainable answer to OPECs oil, was found to have┬ábreached CAP Code clauses 3.1 (Substantiation), 3.2 (Division of informed opinion), 7.1 (Truthfulness), 49.1, 49.2 and 49.3 (Environmental claims). The ASA said that the the ad must not appear again in its current form. ASA told RFA to remove the claim “BIOFUELS – A … SUSTAINABLE ANSWER TO OPEC’S OIL” from their ad.
