People & Purpose

Overview

Marketing leaders need to grow businesses for existing generations and for the generations to come. Consumers are environmentally conscious, and they want to buy from businesses that think like them. Many marketers argue that integrating sustainability values into a brand can contribute to market growth and that marketing sustainability will be important for businesses that want to keep or attract consumers with mindsets toward the environment, social issues, and economic growth.
