Car companies need to print pollutant levels on all publications
The Jerusalem District Court last week rejected the petition of two car companies that had been fined by the Environmental Protection Ministry for failing to provide transparent pollution level information. Each of the companies, Meir and Shlomo Car Import, had received fines of NIS 440,600 for neglecting to publish their air pollution data in their online advertisements, as required by law.

"We are in an era in which apart from immediate financial considerations, each person takes into account the pollution caused to the environment and the health damages caused to his or her family," said Environmental Protection Minister Amir Peretz. Whether on the Internet or in print, all car advertisements must indicate their emissions levels, according to the Clean Air Law, the ministry explained.
