BanFossilAds campaign targets advertising agencies over work with highly polluting clients.

Top advertising agencies HQ’d in London have been accused of greenwashing major polluters including car and SUV companies, airlines and fossil fuels, in a campaign that saw over 200 billboards and bus stops hacked by activists in the UK, Belgium and France.

Leading agencies were targeted over their role in the climate crisis, as spoof ads installed without permission linked Ogilvy, MediaCom, VCCP and others with their high carbon clients such as Shell, BP, Jaguar Land Rover and British Airways.

The action was part of four days of Europe-wide grassroots actions to protest fossil advertising and sponsorships, under the banner #BanFossilAds.
