The postal service used data from Norway’s Climate Index that highlighted only 10 out of 100 companies have cut emissions in accordance with the targets set in the Paris Agreement.

After the success of last year’s ‘When Harry Met Santa’ film, Posten has launched an equally bold and important Christmas ad that details the damage being done to the planet over the festive period.

In ‘Father Christmas and Mother Earth,’ viewers see the dynamics between the two characters as they navigate their differences. Father Christmas is intent on bringing as much joy to people as possible through gift-giving, whereas Mother Earth views overconsumption as problematic.

According to the organization, the hope is that this year’s Christmas campaign will motivate other companies to “step up their climate action and be inspired to contribute.”
