Unifying An Industry for Climate Action: Advertising's Race to Net-Zero Emissions

A single organization prioritizing sustainability can be difficult without the buy-in of the full industry and its supply chain. The digital advertising industry, which powers most of the internet, an industry with higher emissions than the global aviation industry, is in the midst of rallying the full supply chain in a race to reach net-zero emissions as soon as possible.

In this session, you will hear how any industry can learn from the speed at which the digital ad industry is prioritizing sustainability pre-competitively and hear a case study on how two organizations - Sharethrough and IPG - are working together to make an immediate improvement in the carbon footprint of their industry.
