Bidtellect was proud to participate in Adweek’s NEXTECH: a two-day, live and virtual event featuring brand executives and technology leaders tackled the question “What’s next in adtech?”  Bidtellect’s VP of Product Arthur Hainline – joined by Jounce Media Founder & President Chris Kane – led a workshop on supply path transparency and carbon waste in the ecosystem: The Future of Green in Advertising: Radical Transparency & Sustainability.


Supply path optimization is not a new concept. The programmatic and digital advertising industry is well-aware of the inefficiencies in buying and selling. But how did we get here? Why did a multi-multi-multi step process to ad delivery become the norm? How much waste – dollars, energy, carbon – are we really creating? How can we do better?

The redundancy of supply chains is the number one cause of supply inefficiency, carbon inefficiency, and lack of transparency into the supply path. There are three ways in which buyers and sellers have redundant supply chains: auction duplication, multi integrations, and reselling or rebroadcasting. On average, resold supply chains account for 40% of display auctions and 58% of video auctions.

These same three causes of redundant supply chains (auction duplication, multi integrations, and reselling) are the major contributors to supply path emissions. They take up extra energy, extra compute time, and release excess emissions.

The first step is tracking emissions in Bidtellect’s platform thanks to our integration with Scope3. Users can alter the pacing rate to participate in fewer auctions artificially, optimize towards supply tiers, block domains with high emissions, as well as target sellers.json. Together, advertisers can ultimately begin to reduce carbon waste and initiate a shift to a more efficient supply path for all.
