Brand expression & comms strategy

Delivering authentic sustainability messages & commitments to consumers (avoiding green washing). Shifting consumer behaviour towards sustainable goals and brand engagement through comms planning, development and campaigns.

We can assist businesses to effectively communicate their sustainability commitments to consumers through branding and campaign activations, and drive behaviour change while building engagement and trust.
We can support with your brand expression, advising on the branding implications of purpose or brand strategy linked to sustainability. Communications strategy then advises how to bring this to life through advertising, PR, social media and other communications channels.
This can mean planning campaigns for brands around a sustainable positioning, or more broadly, we can advise brands on how they can consistently approach each stage of communications planning – from briefing through to activation and measurement – with sustainability in mind.

Typical challenges include

  • Consumers’ expectations are shifting
  • Not only do consumers want brands to be more sustainable, they also want brands to make it easier for them to behave more sustainably
  • And it is no longer enough to just say you are sustainable, these promises need to be backed up by hard facts, action and reality
  • Consumers will be quick to boycott brands that are found to be greenwashing
