Today, it’s not enough for companies to just make good products or have the best service. They must stand for something. People support brands who share their values.

More often than not, those values include environmental sustainability. But in a world where everything is “green,” “eco,” and “earth-friendly,” how do companies stand out?

Brands can’t just call themselves green anymore. We’ll look at the history of the “eco” movement and where things stand today. Then, we’ll explore the strategies and best practices of companies that embody what it means to be sustainable without being cliche or dishonest.

You’ll come away with a clearer understanding of what it means to be a sustainable brand in 2020, along with strategic and practical brand approaches to put into practice.
