Comms Declare has released the first report into climate actions by Australia's advertising and communications world.
The report finds that people aged under 30 in the industry care deeply about climate and many are prepared to move jobs if their agency isn't acting accordingly.
Two years of surveys has revealed that agencies know climate is important but they are failing to take the difficult, transformative actions required to make a real difference.
For example, 74% want to reach net zero but only 39% had a clear understanding of their carbon footprint.
The transparency of top agencies when it comes to climate actions and clients is also rated.
Here's some fun facts about the client pollution that is part of an agency's Scope 3 emissions.
To put this in perspective, Che Proximity's clients produce 9% of Australia's annual greenhouse gas emissions.
CHE Proximity clients: 44, 306, 963
M&C Saatchi clients: 18, 400, 826
GraCosway clients: 13, 638, 033
Australia: 494, 200, 000
Average Australian person: 22
