AA (Advertising Association)

The Advertising Association represents UK advertisers, agencies, media owners, and tech companies. Founded in 1926, we promote the rights, roles and responsibilities of advertising domestically and internationally, acting as the link between practitioners and the politicians and policymakers whose decisions impact the sector.

In concert with the advertising industry’s think tank Credos, we produce and disseminate research and reports that enable our members to make informed decisions. Our work is focused around a number of policy areas and industry programmes including trust in advertising, data and e-privacy, digital advertising, promoting growth and many more.


At AdGreen we motivate the advertising industry to reduce the negative environmental impacts of production, and enable the community to measure and understand waste and carbon emissions.
We don’t consult on individual productions, we focus on the bigger picture, providing sustainability training, the carbon calculator, and reduction resources for everyone to access in order to accelerate change.

The levy enables us to provide these free, resulting in a carbon-literate workforce adept at producing content on a reduced carbon budget.

We also analyse the carbon calculator’s dataset to assess where infrastructure projects can support a faster shift to net-zero – and then work with biggest suppliers (transport, studios, generators, equipment) to make this possible.

Conscious Advertising Network

CAN, the Conscious Advertising Network, is an international not-for-profit member organisation
Focused on breaking the economic link between advertising and harmful content.

We combine our advertising and human rights expertise to help implement industry, platform, and policy interventions – and embed human rights within relevant commercial and political decision-making, globally.

Our 180+ members include Haleon, Virgin Media O2, British Gas and Innocent Drinks; network media agencies Group M, Havas Media, and Omnicom Media Group; plus, leading civil society groups, including the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, Global Disinformation Index and the Institute for Strategic Dialogue. Our founders and staff are based in London, UK.

We work directly with advertising platforms, media owners and publishers to pioneer positive changes and set new human rights precedents within the industry.


ISBA is the only body that represents brand owners advertising in the UK. We empower them to understand the industry and shape its future because we bring together a powerful community of marketers with common interests; lead decision-making with knowledge and insight; and give a single voice to advocacy for the improvement of the industry.
