Clean Creatives has released its 2023 F-List, to coincide with Climate Week in New York. The report findings highlight 500 fossil fuel contracts from 294 different advertising and PR agencies from 2022 and 2023.
According to the report, the holding company with the most fossil fuel contracts is WPP followed by Omnicom in second.
“This year’s F-List is a snapshot of agencies in denial about the climate impact of their work for fossil fuels,” said Duncan Meisel, Executive Director, Clean Creatives.
“Scientists and global leaders have condemned the work carried out by advertising and PR agencies to spread fossil fuel disinformation, and their warnings demand a response.”
In addition to the report’s launch, there will be an out-of-home marketing campaign targeted at employees of the firms listed across New York City.
“We share our data publicly to encourage transparency so that creatives at agencies can learn who they are actually working for and have the tools to take action. Our research process is based on public records and we welcome corrections and updates from agencies who are no longer working with fossil fuel clients,” said Nayantara Dutta, Research Director, Clean Creatives.
