IAS integrates Good-Loop’s Green Media technology to offer carbon emissions measurement to digital advertisers
Advertisers will be able to seamlessly track the carbon emissions of their digital ad campaigns using IAS and Good-Loop data feeds
NEW YORK, September 20, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — As part of this partnership, Good-Loop’s carbon measurement solution will be integrated with IAS’s reporting platform, IAS Signal. The integration will allow advertisers to seamlessly track and view the end-to-end carbon footprint of their digital ads in the same way as other crucial metrics such as viewability. Good-Loop’s data feeds will allow advertisers using IAS’ Media Quality Platform to closely monitor and reduce the environmental impact of their advertisements throughout the campaign lifecycle.
Significant computing power is required to power the trillions of real-time auctions taking place across the length and breadth of the programmatic ecosystem, driving carbon emissions. According to Good-Loop online carbon calculatoran example of an ad campaign that costs $115,000 (£100,000) and produced 20 million impressions (at a CPM of $6) emits around 5.4 tonnes of carbon, almost a third of what an average US consumer and half of what a UK consumer produces in a year.
“Sustainability is a global priority for IAS and we believe it is our collective responsibility to have a lasting impact,” said Lisa Utzschneider, CEO, IAS. “Our partnership with Good-Loop will bring greater transparency to advertisers on climate change and provide them with the tools they need to reduce their carbon emissions. This partnership is a major step forward to further decarbonize digital media.
Good-Loop, a Certified B Company, is on a mission to develop simple solutions that move the industry towards positive, climate-friendly advertising. Good-Loop is a Certified Net Carbon Negative Company.
“IAS has been a leader in our industry for many years, helping to educate and equip our industry for an era of safer and more efficient media buying,” said Amy Williams, CEO and Founder of Good-Loop. “In fact, it’s a company that I took a lot of inspiration from when I started my own company. I’m really excited to partner with such a pioneering and forward-thinking company, as we work together to drive industry once again. Together, our integrated Green Media solution will enable advertisers around the world to realize their net zero commitments and bring about real and lasting change for generations to come.”
Sanofi, the global healthcare brand, and Omnicom Media Group (OMG), the leading media services provider, will participate in testing the carbon emissions tracker developed by IAS and Good-Loop.
“Sanofi’s Consumer Healthcare business will seek to challenge all marketing supply chain activities in line with our goal of building the road to carbon neutrality by 2030,” said Prasad Ghag, Global Head Media, Digital & Strategic Planning, Sanofi. “Beta testing the Carbon Tracker with IAS and Good-loop will be our starting point for understanding carbon emission levels across our media activities and will be critical in designing future media actions to contribute to our broader carbon reduction goals.”
OMG is the global media agency responsible for media planning and buying for Sanofi’s consumer healthcare brands.
“At OMG, sustainability is a priority and we take our collective responsibility to care for the planet seriously. We are pioneering solutions to help measure and ultimately reduce carbon emissions from business. media, and we are proud to support Sanofi on its equally ambitious journey,” said Charlotte BaxterGlobal Head of Digital and Operations, OMG.
