Afternoon Tea Q&A with Belinda Noble from Comms Declare

24 Nov 2022
3:00pm - 3:30pm

Scope X emissions, the climate emergency and Fossil Ad Ban


Join us for afternoon tea at 3pm AEDT Thursday 24 November as we hear from Belinda Noble, President and Founder of Comms Declare.

As we know, fossil fuel sponsorships of sports and community groups and fossil fuel advertising are coming under increasing scrutiny in Australia and overseas. Belinda will take us through the reasons she started the Fossil Ad Ban campaign, which councils have voted for a ban so far, and the next steps of the campaign.

Belinda will also cover the concept of advertised, or ‘Scope X‘ emissions, how they fit into climate plans, and the reputational risks of partnering with coal, oil or gas companies.
