Making an impact at IAS
At IAS, we aim to deliver quality and transparency in all we do. In an effort to bring these pillars beyond the digital world, we’re highlighting our environment, social, and governance (ESG) initiatives to recognize and strengthen our communities.
IAS’s mission is to be the global benchmark for trust and transparency in digital media quality for the world’s leading brands, publishers, and platforms. As we embark on new frontiers, we are focusing strategically on ESG. Achieving this goal requires us to first set our own goal as a company: a promise to empower and enable growth in our employees, customers, and communities.
Our operations are designed to reduce our carbon footprint and enforce sustainable environmental practices.
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
“We Are One Team” is our company value and commitment to create an environment where everyone is empowered to bring their authentic selves to work. Our diverse backgrounds, perspectives, and life experiences create our unique team and fuel our innovation. We execute on our diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) goals through numerous programs including our employee resource groups, an employee-led DEI council, benefits, and more. Our values guide us — we live them every day, measure our success, and continuously evolve.
