Shell Climate Change Ads Axed From Facebook

Greg Winterton: 16 November 2020


Some Shell advertisements, including for its electric vehicle-charging firm Greenlots, have been removed from Facebook over concerns around transparency of environmental policies and climate change.

Shell’s advertisements – part of rebranding efforts to place emphasis on its renewable energy divisions – were labelled as sponsored, but did not include a disclaimer stating they were paid for by the firm. 

This also isn’t the first time Shell has been involved in controversial advertising – a campaign earlier this year at petrol pumps indicating that consumers could “drive carbon neutral” drew complaints over misleading information, given oil’s contribution to climate change.
