Amazon closing in on Google, Facebook digital ad market duopoly, US ad agency says

Amazon | June 17, 2019

Advertisers and companies trying to expand their marketing, take heed: There’s a new way to reach customers, starting with something called "advanced television”.  That’s when advertising on television is customised, much like online ads, using consumers’ viewing habits, purchases and location data. Advanced advertising on TV was one of the insights that the Philadelphia ad agency Harmelin Media shared with clients at an event last week. “Consumer data is now being matched with viewership data to follow your audience wherever they live,” Harmelin Media’s Dan Cox, vice-president and head of planning, told the crowd of about 100 guests at the Barnes Foundation’s auditorium.

Teads APAC & IMPACT+ Partner in Measuring the Carbon Footprint of Online Advertising

Teads, IMPACT+ | September 29, 2022

Teads, the global media platform, announces a partnership with IMPACT+, with the purpose of measuring the greenhouse gas emissions of online advertising campaigns run through its platform. This announcement follows a series of tests with brands such as Renault, LaPoste, and Hello bank! at the French Ministry of Justice in France testing the carbon footprint of their advertising campaigns. The solution has now been introduced across APAC and ANZ exclusively to OMG group and its clients. The goal of this initiative is to create a standard of carbon footprint measurement across Teads’ campaigns, to better support brands and agencies in their CSR approach. Currently, Teads globally has over 50+ brands that have begun the use of IMPACT+ to measure their campaigns’ carbon footprint. This measurement capability has also gone live with OMG’s top 10 clients in APAC. Measuring the carbon footprint, a strategic challenge The environmental impact of online advertising is a young, and complicated topic. IMPACT+ is the leading third-party measurement provider, who can estimate the carbon footprint of digital communications and bring concrete recommendations on how to set up an environmental KPI. Teads’ new partnership with IMPACT+ allows advertisers to evaluate the greenhouse gas emissions of their Teads’ campaigns. Leveraging this measurement, brands will now have the ability to minimise the power consumption of each impression served as well as reduce the electricity impact of each media objective, with Teads’ continued investment toward minimising the amount of impressions required to reach the same objective. IMPACT+ currently provides a calculation to report on GHG emissions at the campaign level, which includes creative delivery electricity consumption and the associated greenhouse gas emissions depending on where the delivery took place, as well as the end-user device lifecycle GHG emissions. Concretely, the considered perimeter implies the necessary electrical consumption to the campaign delivery and the greenhouse gas emissions induced by this consumption. This first step allows then to analyse the campaign parameters impact from the point of view of the equipment’s usage (data centre, network, and devices) that are necessary to the delivery and to recommend optimisation levers. The actual calculation is based on the required energy for hosting advertising creatives, transporting on the network, and using the user’s device displaying these ads. This approach is part of Teads’ continued ambitions to evolve its platform and maintain its position as a sustainable business. The series of tests will open doors to new thoughts aiming to use this carbon metrics along with traditional media KPIs. Teads’ ambition in this space is to standardise carbon footprint measurement within the platform and therefore lead the digital marketing industry where reducing the carbon footprint of a campaign, without reducing its effectiveness, is the ultimate goal. The methods in place are new and keen to evolve to consider a larger perimeter, integrating other elements involved in the delivery like use or data, programmatic or third-party integrations for example or also other environmental impacts, beyond carbon emissions. For this reason, the ongoing procedures for the formalisation of an industrywide reference framework are welcome to collectively progress in the subject. The goal is to understand ultimately how to minimise the carbon footprint without compromising media performances and avoid a bounce back effect. Paul Shepherd, chief investment officer and president of Annalect at OMG APAC says “As brands increasingly focus on reducing their scope 3 emissions, our industry needs to supply solutions that our clients can orchestrate towards their sustainability efforts." Paul Shepherd, chief investment officer and president of Annalect at OMG APAC says “As brands increasingly focus on reducing their scope 3 emissions, our industry needs to supply solutions that our clients can orchestrate towards their sustainability efforts.
