About the course

Sustainability is fast becoming a topic high on the boardroom agenda. Regulators demand more, consumers demand more, employees demand more. The timeframe urgency around effecting climate change and indeed Covid-19 have accelerated long-term thinking and the need for immediate action – and more organisations are waking up to the competitive advantage, employee engagement and commercial benefits of doing ‘good’ business. So how do brands and organisations start taking action, baking sustainability into the brand in an authentic and meaningful way?

Sitting at the heart of brand, communications, stakeholders, product development and customer – responsible marketers have a significant role to play in marketing sustainability.
