For the latest in our NDA Meets podcast series, For the latest in our NDA Meets podcast series, we sit down with Richard Ottoy, GM, EMEA at Sharethrough and Harvin Gupta, Head Of Commercial Partnerships, Scope3.

The discussion focuses on the potential environmental damage of digital advertising, the move to net zero campaigns and the critical role of Green Media products.

“There are a large number of companies aware of the extremely high level of emissions being created by our industry but companies don’t know where to start even understanding the level of their own emissions and how they can start to address them,” said Ottoy. “Just to put this in perspective, one million impressions from an ad campaign wil generated on metric ton of CO2. One impression will generate on gram of CO2.”

Gupta said: “Adtech’s always had a hidden sustainability issue and it’s only now it’s coming to the fore. If you think about how complex ad serving is, the way our industry is structured today is incredibly inefficient. Things are changing though and people are educating themselves about the problem.”

Ths discussion covers ways everyone in the industry can make changes to their own business to become more efficient and the first steps that can be made to make a real difference, the impact of SPO and DPO, and the importance of standardisation in measurement and currencies.
