The challenge

Social responsibility and sustainability offer potential chances for the differentiation and reputation improvement of company and product brands. Questions which brand managers ask in this context:

  • Which role can sustainability aspects play for the brand strategy?

  • Which consequences do sustainability aspects have for brand trust, brand preference, purchase decisions and brand value? For the company´s reputation?

  • Which consequences can the defined role of sustainability have for brand and product communication?

  • How can we use concrete sustainability attributes to increase sales? For instance: We have an EPD (environmental product declaration) - how can this help to improve our competitive position and support our sales?


Clarity about the relationship between brand and sustainability contributes to:

  • realistically estimating the potential which sustainability has for the differentiation and profiling of product and company brands

  • fully tap the potential which sustainability offers for your brand

  • to improve the "Return on Investment“ of investments made in sustainability by unlocking synergies between sustainable activities of companies and the effective brand and company communication
