Methodology of our Carbon Evaluation

Working groups, led by corresponding trade associations (SRI/Alliance Digitale for digital, SNPTV for TV, Bureau de la Radio for radio, etc.), have developed specific frameworks for each type of media. These frameworks, often co-developed with DK, serve as a basis for calculating the carbon footprint of an ad. They also provide industry-specific data to supplement information from reference organizations like ADEME, the European Commission, or the European Environment Agency (EEA). Furthermore, these frameworks define the measurement scope and the activity flows to consider.

DK's solution is scalable and designed to improve carbon measurement, particularly in the media and communication industry. Our solution is applicable across all markets. We actively engage with relevant organizations such as the Global Alliance for Responsible Media (GARM), a cross-industry initiative established by the World Federation of Advertisers. Additionally, DK is part of the IAB EU Sustainability group.


Why calculate the carbon emissions of my ad campaigns?

Start by measuring the carbon emissions of each online & off-line campaign. If you don't know how big the carbon footprint of each of your campaigns are, then you won't know how to lower your impact

What type of media does DK support?

All of them! DK is the only company to offer a measurement tool for all media, on and off-line. Our analyses cover Radio, Print, Linear TV, CTV, Digital, Social Networks (Meta/FB, Tiktok, Youtube), E-mailing and Outdoor.

What is programmatic ?

Programmatic advertising is an automated digital advertising buying process. It takes place through technological platforms that enable real-time connections between sellers and buyers of ad space, with targeting capabilities based on the environment, user profile, geolocation, time of day, and more.

How does DK's carbon analysis work?

DK offers a tool incorporating data from the frameworks developed by the trade bodies of each media, following the Bilan Carbone methodology. Unlike other companies, DK has designed its solutions to minimize the carbon footprint of the measurement.

In which geographical areas can DK be activated?

Our calculator was originally designed for use in France, but can be used in any other country, provided we are familiar with its practices regarding the storage, distribution and use of advertising (Life Cycle Analysis).

What is LCA (Life Cycle Assessment) and what does it refer to?

Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) is the most advanced evaluation tool for a comprehensive, multi-criteria approach to environmental impact. LCA lists and quantifies the greenhouse gas emissions generated by advertising, taking into account storage (servers), distribution (networks) and use (terminals) for each of the media whether TV, Print, Digital or Radio
