End Fossil Fuel Ads on Social Media

End Fossil Fuel Ads on Social Media

Responsible companies should not be profiting off of climate disinformation. Social media companies have already banned tobacco advertisements because of the damage they do to public health, and now Big Oil is using the same tactics as Big Tobacco to mislead the public. Social media companies have an opportunity to be on the right side of history, and it's time for all of them to stop running ads from the fossil fuel industry.

Why is this important?

Advertisements from Big Oil are polluting the public debate on climate change, and obstructing the ability of governments to take necessary steps to stop deadly emissions and pollution. Companies like Facebook, Google, Twitter, LinkedIn, and TikTok are now some of the biggest online platforms for public debate that we have - and for fossil fuel polluters to greenwash their reputations and obstruct climate action.

Responsible companies should not be profiting off of climate disinformation. Social media companies have already banned tobacco advertisements because of the damage they do to public health, and now Big Oil is using the same tactics as Big Tobacco to mislead the public.

Emissions from fossil fuels and the subsequent pollution and climate damage are the leading cause of preventable deaths worldwide. Fossil fuel companies are using their ad campaigns to influence the debate around and block climate action.

If you agree that it’s time for big tech companies to ban fossil fuel advertisements, add your name to our petition now.
