holding answer 23 March 2010

The Act On CO2 advertising campaign is designed to encourage individuals to make the changes in behaviour necessary to reduce carbon emissions, and mitigate the effects of climate change. The Department evaluates the campaign using a range of measures: Pre and post campaign omnibus surveys to assess shifts in awareness, attitudes and claimed behaviour; number of website visits, indicating the degree to which the campaign has generated a desire among the public to find out more; click-through rates from online display advertisements; where applicable, number of telephone calls generated; number of visits to the Act On CO2 carbon calculator and assessment from third party partners of the success of the campaign.
