Increase brand value with sustainability

Consumers have high expectations on how brands must own their commitments on sustainability. The way you communicate on sustainability will help answer these expectations, and can also position your brand ahead of the competition.

Own your story

Consumer trends highlight the influence of sustainability on sales growth and leadership for brands. Millennials for instance, believe that their buying behavior has a greater impact than their vote, and openly align with brands that reflect their values.

79% of respondents were more loyal to purpose-driven brands and 66% of consumers were willing to switch from a product they typically buy, to one from a company with purpose.

However, the number of food products making sustainability claims is growing rapidly. Today, it’s more difficult than ever for consumers to understand the differences between the various labels.  That’s why more and more brands are taking ownership of their programs, to ensure impact and to access storytelling opportunities that strengthen the values associated with their brand.
