2022 Question

Sustainability has emerged a strong area of focus for corporates, brands and governments alike. However, there is much debate on the authenticity of sustainability efforts and commitments, and whether these are mere tactics to improve reputation or align with the “flavour of the moment”. The debate is further fuelled by the numerous scandals and issues including Coca-Cola sponsoring COP27, H&M being called out for misguiding consumers with their eco-friendly claims, ivory-washing by beauty brands and so many more such incidents.

What role do in-house and agency professionals play in sustainability communications? Does the burden of ensuring authenticity fall on the communications team?
