The clip previews the first episode of a short film series that promotes clean energy.
Time Framed is a set of eco-friendly instalments featuring Vampire Diaries and Lost actor Somerhalder as Agent Black.
Black is a secret operative who fights the enemy while donning a tuxedo.
Somerhalder tweeted the trailer, writing: "It's LIVE! Check it out! Was so much fun making this with @SinFactoryMedia Thank you! #TimeFramed"
The actor launched the Ian Somerhalder Foundation on his 32nd birthday in December 2010. The foundation's aim is to "empower, educate and collaborate with people and projects to positively impact the planet and its creatures".
The Time Framed films will premiere via timeframedtheseries.com in the New Year.
