- CJ and Earthmark launches new strategic partnership
London & California,14 July Publishers: Empower Conscious Choices & Increase Conversion with Earthmark Sustainability is becoming more and more important to consumers. According to eMarketer, at least 45% of global shoppers are interested in shifting to brands that focus on circular and sustainable practices. One of the biggest hurdles to making more conscious choices? The effort it takes to verify sustainability claims. Today, it's easy for consumers to base shopping decisions on values like trust and popularity. With Earthmark, they gain trusted insight and confidence that allow them to evaluate environmental performance and make choices with sustainability in mind. B2C Platforms Struggle to Communicate Sustainability to Users It can feel nearly impossible to cut through the confusion of greenwashing, eco-labels, and carbon jargon to understand the true impact a brand has (good or bad!) on the environment. A recent global survey from Dentsu and Microsoft found that 42% of people surveyed wanted “clear, comparable information” on the carbon footprint of products and advertising, and 34% of respondents said they look for independent auditing to validate green claims. Adding environmental scores for brands into places where people already browse, shop, compare, and spend just makes sense. Which is why we’re thrilled to announce our newest strategic partnership with CJ, which gives an exclusive discount for CJ publishers. Who is Earthmark and what do they do? Earthmark is on a mission to empower conscious decision-making for consumers worldwide through clear, comparable environmental data. They aggregate global data from verified, trusted, and published sources and translate it into a single environmental score. They then partner with third-party platforms (like CJ publishers!) to plug their rating system into existing customer journeys. Depicted as a simple five leaf rating from 0-5, a brands’ Earthmark shows how they’re performing from an environmental perspective. A one-leaf rating represents businesses who are operating “as usual” with minimal to no effort to mitigate climate change, while a five-leaf rating represents businesses who are optimising positive impacts through regenerative business practices. Earthmark’s tools search the vast data pool of industry-leading certifications and third-party verified databases to ensure the result they present is the latest, most trustworthy, and robust information available. They consider the industry and size of a business, current and future committed environmental performance (i.e. emissions, carbon intensity, and net-zero targets), as well as select third-party certifications to get an accurate, representative view.

- Savings United and The Independent launch ‘Earthmarks’, rating brands’ sustainability
London, 23 March Savings United, The Independent and Earthmark today announce the launch of an innovative initiative on The Independent’s vouchers portal, giving brands’ sustainability ratings. The Independent will now show ‘Earthmarks’ — environmental scores for sustainable, restorative and regenerative advertisers, allowing consumers to make conscious, informed decisions about their purchases. In addition, The Independent’s vouchers portal will now highlight sustainable product ranges to consumers in the form of offers, encouraging people to make more climate-friendly choices. Savings United and The Independent have also worked closely with affiliate networks and suppliers to source new sustainable advertisers, creating market-leading opportunities for consumers to buy better. Campbell Price, The Independent’s e-Commerce Director, says: “The Independent has been committed to environmental issues since launching in 1986, and this is the latest in a long line of innovative initiatives designed to give readers the tools to make change happen. By making it easier to understand which brands are sustainable, consumers will have more power to form decisions which are grounded in helping our planet in a tangible, impactful way.” Dan Cohen, Group Commercial Director at Savings United, says: "At Savings United, one of our pillars is to help consumers make conscious buying decisions and this exciting partnership between The Independent, Earthmark and Savings United is an innovative way to show this to consumers. In conjunction with ‘green coupons’, which shows consumers sustainable product ranges on advertisers’ sites, this provides consumers with the tools to understand and minimise the negative environmental effects of their purchase."
