The advertising industry is mobilising in response to the climate emergency. The Ad Net Zero initiative represents an industry-wide collaboration to curb emissions from advertising industry’s operations: including the ad production process, media planning and buying. This is delivered as part of a partnership between the Advertising Association, IBSA and the Institute of Practitioners in Advertising (IPA).

Their ‘Ad Net Zero’ report, launched November 2020, calculated the operational emissions of the advertising industry to be 84,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent. It then outlined a 5-step plan for organisations to reduce emissions.

Over 80 companies spanning brands, agencies, media owners, tech platforms and trade bodies have signed up to the Ad Net Zero initiative. As of December 2021, we are proud supporters of the Ad Net Zero group in order to help combat climate change within the industry and create a more sustainable future.
