In the dynamic world of Out of Home advertising for net-zero emissions, there’s a real opportunity to be a vehicle of change for environmental causes. The San Francisco Public Utility Commission’s (SFPUC) latest campaign exemplifies this potential. In a spirited bid to reach their net-zero emissions goal by 2040, the SFPUC partnered with EMC Outdoor to promote the switch to electric appliances through a thought-provoking OOH campaign.

OOH advertising is proving to be an impactful way to deliver on net-zero objectives and positively influence local and national infrastructure and communities. The OOH industry has led the charge in sustainable development, with key players implementing strategies to drive carbon neutrality across their operations.

At the heart of this innovative advertising format, strategically placed throughout the San Francisco Bay area, are over 808 digital screens, exclusively located on EV charging stations in high-traffic parking lots of popular retailers such as Macy’s, Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s, Safeway, and more. This targeted placement allowed the campaign to connect directly with those already conscious of their environmental footprint and likely to embrace the move to electric appliances.

The campaign’s clever and impactful message, “Break up with gas… move on with electric appliances,” is showcased on these EV charging station screens. This creative content resonates deeply with the audience who are already invested in sustainable living and are open to taking further steps towards a net-zero emissions lifestyle.
