America's biggest PR firm formally declares it will not accept climate denial campaigns

EdelmanEdelman, America’s biggest public relations firm, has for the first time formally declared it will not take on campaigns that deny global warming, in response to an investigation by the Guardian. However it is unclear on its commitment to existing clients that have been involved in spreading doubt about climate change and fighting regulations to cut carbon pollution.

The explicit rejection comes in response to a story earlier this week that saw a number of top firms in the industry ‚Äď but not Edelman ‚Äď declare as a matter of company policy that they viewed climate change as a threat, and that they would not take on clients or campaigns that deny climate change.

In an apparent damage control exercise, the PR firm alerted the Guardian to what may be the industry’s first official position on climate denial.

A statement on its website reads: ‚ÄúEdelman fully recognises the reality of, and science behind, climate change, and believes it represents one of the most important global challenges facing society, business and government today. To be clear, we do not accept client assignments that aim to deny climate change.‚ÄĚ
