Leonardo DiCaprio – A positive step forward from The @Guardian | #Regram #RG @guardian: W @leonardodicaprio

A positive step forward from The @Guardian ? | #Regram #RG @guardian: We have decided that we will no longer accept advertising from fossil fuel extracting companies.

We are the first major global news organisation to institute this outright ban and hope others will join us soon.

Environmental groups have long argued that energy companies use expensive advertising campaigns to “greenwash” their activities, paying to highlight relatively small investments in renewable energy while continuing to make the vast majority of their revenue from extracting fossil fuels.
Advertising makes up 40% of our revenue, so it remains a key way to fund our journalism.

Our acting chief executive, Anna Bateson, and chief revenue officer, Hamish Nicklin, said “it’s true that rejecting some adverts might make our lives a tiny bit tougher in the very short term. Nonetheless, we believe building a more purposeful organisation and remaining financially sustainable have to go hand in hand.” They acknowledged that some readers would like us to turn down advertising for any product with a significant carbon footprint, such as cars or holidays, but explained that this isn’t financially sustainable while the media industry’s business model remained in crisis.

@Greenpeace welcomed the move, calling it “a watershed moment”.

  2. Hi Mr. DiCaprio, I am Bardia Bavafa. I am thirteen years old from Iran. During the last four years, I have been involved in campaigns, Iranian associations in the field of environment, animal protection, vegetarianism, etc., until I met you. I have followed all your activities and I am very eager to get to know you. I am the admin of one of the animal and environmental protection campaigns in Iran.

  3. Some o e has the balls…..unfortunatelly the most of as still customized and not many choices to separate our self from consuming oil products, Im sure and hope more resources becoming available to the lower and middle clase . Im not an expert I just observe how European ans China when they see some3is good for them or ok enough to at list try in pro of human kind and our planet thinking, they take more action not evaluating how to make and who is gonna get their most cut….like solar panels to mention or LEDs technology, Im close to half century of life and since I remember LEDs where in radio yes Im sure now after read this you going to say that usually red light indication power ON…?s

  4. Did you seek your jet and yacht? Most likely not but you think you have the right to tell us how to live ?? off

  5. Leo, I feel there needs to be more attention towards the meat industry. I hope you’re not afraid to stand up to the true corporate. ?❤️?#govegan

  6. thank you! I know someone out there doesn’t want telemarketing gas companies. I work for one and it isn’t worth the money and I’m praying I find a new job when I’m ready post covid19. ???

  7. I live in France. I have a house in Britanny with a garden. Nothing chemical is used in my garden. I use egg shells to keep snails away from my plants, banana peels and leftover ground coffee as fertilizers. As I read The Guardian, I’m happy to hear they won’t be advertizing anymore for fossil fuel extracting companies. Another problem we have in France is electrical cars. They are much too expensive for middle and lower classes to buy. And what about the batteries once they have to be replaced ? I don’t know about other countries, but in France the batteries are rented, therefore not included in the price of the car, making the prices raise way above what we can spend for a car. Still, what becomes of the batteries once unused ? My concern about nuclear power is the same : what becomes of nuclear residue (?). I know some barrels have been sealed and sunk into the sea, some have been buried. But we also hear about nuclear barrels leaking. What kind of world are we leaving to our grand-children ?

  8. Acaso las grandes industrias han hecho algo por disminuir tanta contaminación desde que se firmo el Acuerdo de Paris??.
