CELEBRATING THE AD INDUSTRY’S BEST WORK TACKLING THE CLIMATE EMERGENCY

Advertising has a pivotal role in helping to shift our economy to a more sustainable footing, by promoting products and services that are better for the planet and encouraging positive changes in people’s behaviour. These new awards seek to do exactly that, recognising the best work from the advertising industry to help tackle the adverse effects of global warming and inspiring even more to be done as quickly as possible."
