How to use sustainability messaging effectively

Including sustainability as part of your marketing communications can be a double-edged sword. Not only because of how important it is to, well, our survival as a species, but also because we’re getting pretty good at seeing right through greenwash. Furthermore, sustainability isn’t necessarily top of people’s reasons to buy from you. The risk is that you could do more harm than good to your brand, or at the very least waste money on marketing that simply doesn’t hit the spot.

This presentation looks at how – and when – sustainability can most effectively be used in marketing activity, and when it’s best to leave well alone.

Who Is The Session Designed For?

Anyone with responsibility for marketing and PR in their business – from senior marketers to business directors and owners.
