ABOUT US

WHAT WE DO

At AdGreen we unite the advertising industry to eliminate the negative environmental impacts of production, and will enable the community to measure and understand waste and carbon impacts, empowering them to act for zero waste / zero carbon. It's where low impact counts!

 

We are part of the Advertising Association, working in partnership with BAFTA and albert, and supported by leading industry players who share our vision. AdGreen has launched in the UK but with global ambition to enable the industry, wherever the activity is, to act for a sustainable future.

 

Reducing emissions from production is one of five recommendations from the Advertising Association's Ad Net Zero report. Over the coming months we'll be developing a carbon calculator and rolling out a program of training and comms - sign up to our newsletter to keep up to date. Meanwhile, all of our resources are here. Learn about Ad Net Zero's wider strategy, goal of net zero by 2030, and the other recommendations here.

ADVISORY BOARD

Our advisory board is made up of leading industry players, and the UK advertising industry's key trade bodies, representing advertisers, advertising agencies, production companies and photographers. The board is chaired by Stephen Woodford, CEO of the Advertising Association and director of AdGreen.
