On 30 January 36 companies ceremonially signed the declaration of intent to join the Green Pledge initiative of three advertising federations – the Self-regulatory Advertising Board (ÖRT), the Hungarian Marketing Association (MMSZ) and the Association of Hungarian Communication Agencies (MAKSZ). These companies will make advertisements in a sustainable fashion from now on, paying special attention to protecting the environment, avoiding greenwashing and promoting sustainability in general.
