Navigating sustainability in digital marketing
by Sarah Coften

In the ever-evolving landscape of digital marketing, Smithfield Agency stands as a beacon for the challenger brands and new market entrants. Our unique challenger-centric approach, combining tailored solutions and strategic partnerships, paves the way for sustainable growth and competitive edge in a post-cookie era.

Sustainability is not just a buzzword for us; it’s a core principle that resonates through our operations and strategies. The world has significantly changed, especially post-pandemic, underscoring the interconnectedness of society and the environment. With a global consensus leaning towards a dire 2023, it’s time for industries, including ours, to lead with purpose and sustainable initiatives.

Our participation in the Athens Sustainability in Digital Marketing Conference was more than a commitment; it was a declaration of our vision to intertwine innovation with sustainability. The conference, led by visionaries like Constantine Kamaras and Dimitris Beis from IAB Europe, underscored the urgent need for the digital marketing industry to champion sustainable practices.

At Smithfield, our approach to sustainability is multifaceted: from reducing our carbon footprint by transitioning to a Grade II listed building in Clerkenwell to fostering strategic partnerships that prioritize eco-friendly solutions. Our vision is clear – to lead the digital advertising space with sustainable strategies that not only meet today’s demands but also safeguard tomorrow’s world.

As we draw closer to Earth Day in April 2024, the symbolism of the Acropolis going dark during Earth Hour during my visit to Athens serves as a poignant reminder of our shared responsibility. This act of solidarity is a call to action for marketers and consumers alike, highlighting the importance of sustainable actions and the impact they have on our planet.

Smithfield Agency is committed to leading by example, embracing the challenges and opportunities that come with forging a sustainable path in digital marketing. Join us as we embark on this journey, shaping a future where innovation and sustainability go hand in hand.
