Communicating your brand’s position on climate change...time to hit the RESET button

The events of the past year have seen the reset button hit for almost every part of our lives. Covid-19 has accelerated interest in environmental issues and now is the time for brands to respond with meaningful advertising, engaging an audience who care.

Our new video series speaks to a range of experts in the Energy, Autos, Country Branding and Banking sectors. Each of them give an update on why sustainability remains a priority in their industry, plus advice to brands on business and marketing strategy.

We caught up with BBC World News presenter, Babita Sharma, who tells us what is happening on the global stage and how businesses in general are rising to the challenge of climate change. We also spoke to Nancy Kacungira, who discusses what sustainability means for Africa and how governments and businesses are working together to deliver a cleaner future.

Our audiences have a huge interest in protecting the environment and are prepared to pay more for eco-friendly products. We are experts in creating features on sustainability; from special seasons of programmes to a wealth of digital content, even podcasts.
