Some of the world’s top PR companies refuse to work with climate change deniers – but will (or should) designers follow suit?
A recent article in The Guardian newspaper’s ‘Sustainable Business Blog’ has detailed unexpected announcements by some of the world’s largest public relations companies that they will refuse to work on campaigns – and in some cases, with clients – that deny the reality of climate change and its effect upon our world.
