For banning fossil fuel advertising

Vox Media announced it will no longer run ads from fossil-fuel companies. The publisher has had in place this policy since early 2021, explained AJ Frucci, Vox Media’s SVP of media revenue, but the company is now “kind of formalizing” it. The company’s advertising policy now states that Vox Media no longer accepts ad dollars from fossil-fuel companies, or any companies that mine nonrenewable resources, Vox Media spokesperson Peyton McCarthy said. The policy will also extend to lobbyist groups “whose purpose is to support fossil-fuel companies.” The Guardian introduced a similar ban in 2020. Vox Media also announced it would pay the cost of offsetting the carbon emissions generated by the publisher’s new “carbon-neutral” advertising inventory for its Concert advertising network, created in a partnership with Scope3, a company designed to help the ad-tech industry scale back its carbon emissions https://www.marketingbrew.com/stories/2023/01/04/vox-media-formalizes-ban-on-fossil-fuel-ads

      That's awesome dedication, and more so even to pay the cost of offsetting carbon they generate.
