Cedara & The Manila Times Partnership

MANILA, PHILLIPPINES, June 4, 2024 / — The Manila Times (TMT), in collaboration with Cedara, the Carbon Intelligence Platform, has announced a pioneering initiative to comprehensively measure advertising carbon emissions, becoming the first publisher in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region to undertake such an endeavor.

TMT will tap Cedara, the leader in mapping emissions across the media supply chain, to leverage its cutting-edge software platform and data-driven approach to measure and reduce its carbon footprint according to industry standards.

TMT is starting with measurement of its digital media, with an eye towards expanding this initiative to its print business and ultimately examining holistic organizational emissions.

Already a leading proponent of sustainability with its expansive editorial coverage of the environment and climate change, TMT also hosts an annual conference on the topic, The Business Forum on Sustainability.
