D&AD SUSTAINABILITY WEBSITE
As a non-profit advertising and design association, all D&AD's surpluses go straight into programmes such as New Blood, inspiring the next generation of creative talent and stimulating the creative industry to work towards a fairer more sustainable future. Sustainability is at the heart of decision making, including environmental, and are committed to transforming the company as a whole in order to reduce our environmental impact.
Working with Julie’s Bicycle in 2015, D&AD pioneered a series of creative events aimed at raising awareness around climate change. More importantly, D&AD benchmarked it's environmental performance against the industry average. Their initial Environmental Audit reported that the carbon footprint of D&AD Festival 2015 was 15 times higher than the head office’s annual environmental impact.
