InMobi, a leading provider of content, monetization and marketing technologies that help businesses fuel growth, today announced its strategic partnership with Ad Net Zero, the climate action program with the mission to accelerate the decarbonization of the advertising industry. This collaboration underscores InMobi's resolute commitment to sustainability, aligning with Ad Net Zero's mission to revolutionize the advertising landscape through decarbonization initiatives spanning ad production, distribution, and publication.
The global advertising industry is at a critical juncture, as it grapples with the environmental impact of its operations. Recent statistics underscore the urgency of the issue, with the internet’s greenhouse gas emissions comprising approximately 4% of the global total – surpassing even the aviation sector. Notably, the energy required to serve one million ad impressions is equivalent to the carbon produced by manufacturing 2.4 million plastic straws.
Recognizing the growing importance of sustainability in business decisions, InMobi has taken a proactive step by aligning itself with Ad Net Zero. As a leader in the ad tech industry, InMobi recognizes the significance of demonstrating sustainability efforts to both its existing clients and potential partners. A recent Deloitte survey highlights that 98% of consumers believe brands are responsible for contributing to a better world, and a considerable portion of consumers prefer to be patrons of sustainable brands.
By joining forces with Ad Net Zero, InMobi embarks on a journey to align with the organization's five-step plan, designed to minimize the carbon footprint of advertising:
Reduce emissions from advertising business operations
Decrease emissions stemming from advertising production
Diminish emissions from media planning and buying
Lessen advertising emissions from awards and events
Harness advertising's potential to drive behavioral change
InMobi's dedication to sustainability extends beyond rhetoric to measurable action. InMobi Exchange, powered by Microsoft Azure which boasts of complete carbon neutrality, stands as a testament to its commitment. Furthermore, data gleaned from the Microsoft Azure Impact Emissions Dashboard showcases InMobi's impressive emission reduction metrics:
InMobi's emission factor ranks within the top fifth percentile compared to average server emission factors
Server usage demonstrates a remarkable 80-90% higher green efficiency compared to alternative on-premise solutions, even high-efficiency ones
Direct SDK integrations, paired with machine learning, have driven emission reductions of up to 30%
"InMobi's partnership with Ad Net Zero symbolizes our dedication to ushering in a more sustainable era for the advertising industry," states Kunal Nagpal, Chief Business Officer at InMobi. "We are proud to stand alongside fellow tech companies and agencies, united in the pursuit of a greener, more responsible future. By fully embracing Ad Net Zero's comprehensive plan, we are steadfast in our commitment to minimizing our environmental impact while advancing the power of advertising."
"Ad Net Zero is thrilled to work with InMobi as they support more sustainable advertising solutions, contributing to our collective global impact. InMobi’s commitment is another significant step toward an eco-friendly future for the industry,” says John Osborn, Director of Ad Net Zero in the U.S.
InMobi’s partnership with Ad Net Zero follows its global sustainability commitment to Science-Based Targets Initiative (SBTi), where InMobi is undergoing a 24-month goal validation process, at the end of which InMobi will commit to ambitious Scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions reduction targets in line with SBTi sector guidelines and the GHG Protocol standards.
InMobi also continues its partnership for the second year with Givsly, the leading purpose driven B2B marketing solution, and shared the stage with Givsly, Dentsu, and IPG Brands at Cannes Lions 2023 to discuss the challenges, opportunities, and the path that can be taken for a sustainable ad tech stack.
Recently, InMobi served as the primary audience partner in AdTechCares’ campaign with Project Drawdown, a nonprofit organization working to reduce greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere. AdTechCares is a 501 (c)(3) organization that leverages ad tech to combat misinformation and keep humanity well, and InMobi is a founding member.
InMobi is a leading provider of marketing and monetization technologies. With deep expertise and unique reach in mobile, it is a trusted and transparent technology partner for marketers, content creators and businesses of all kinds. InMobi’s mission is to power its customers’ growth by helping them engage their audiences and build meaningful connections.

Healthcare advertising technology leader DeepIntent announced the launch of DeepIntent Copilot, a groundbreaking step toward more integrated and intelligent healthcare advertising using connected artificial intelligence (AI). Seamlessly bridging media spend and clinical outcomes, Copilot is a new tool that works alongside marketers to offer actionable insights and recommendations that optimize marketing decisions and drive more relevant connections with patients and healthcare providers (HCPs) across the path to prescription.
Driven in part by digital access, patients are now active participants in their health journey, offering pharma marketers more opportunities to activate cohesive, data-driven strategies across patients and their HCPs. However, that data is often siloed within numerous point solutions, which makes it challenging for brands to know they're reaching the right HCP and patient audiences with maximum efficiency and performance. Additionally, their investments are equally fragmented across various channels and partners, each with nuances that often result in measurements that are too delayed to be actionable.
DeepIntent's unique ability to connect data across planning, activation, and measurement has already begun to solve these challenges. DeepIntent Copilot builds on this foundation using generative and connected AI to create an interactive experience that surfaces meaningful insights and recommendations based on real-time media data tied to clinical outcomes. The result is a platform that empowers healthcare marketers to streamline campaign activation and focus their media investments on the audiences and strategies that drive measurable growth and ultimately improve patient outcomes.
Examples of DeepIntent Copilot driving performance and efficiency include:
Pre-optimizing campaigns with audience recommendations that maximize performance against specific goals, like audience quality and verified patient reach
Maximizing media investment during activation with campaign and channel insights rooted in real-world clinical outcomes
Generating recommendations to traders for enhancing scale and performance forHCP and patient campaigns
Evaluating the value of millions of ad opportunities per second and prioritizing those that drive higherAQ and increase scripts
"AI remains artificial unless you have fully integrated data and solution connectivity, which DeepIntent's platform provides. DeepIntent Copilot marks the dawn of a new category of DSP: an intelligent DSP which supercharges all existing advantages of a healthcare DSP with AI. Our platform already allowed marketers to do it all in one place. By having AI everywhere, we simplify campaign planning and reduce the time required to achieve positive ROI by giving marketers and their agencies the tools they need to be dynamic. This allows them to detect and anticipate changes in the marketplace and adapt their campaigns and strategies in real-time," said Chris Paquette, Founder and CEO of DeepIntent.

With a core belief that advertising technology can measurably improve the lives of patients, DeepIntent is leading the healthcare advertising industry into the future. Built purposefully for the healthcare industry, the DeepIntent Healthcare Advertising Platform is proven to drive higher audience quality and script performance with patented technology and the industry's most comprehensive health data.
