The Heart of What Matters

Accelerate your transformation

Accelerate your transformation

For more than a decade, Havas has been conducting its Meaningful Brands survey across 30 markets, 2,000 brands and over 20 industries.

Our research shows that consumers are increasingly frustrated by the lack of action they see on sustainability. They want businesses to talk less and do more about their impact on the planet, and more than three-quarters believe it is up to companies to take the lead.

To address these truly existential issues of the day, businesses need wholesale, systemic transformation.

This event will address the challenges businesses are facing to accelerate this transformation.
