About this event

Event description

Leeds Beckett University’s Business School are joined by Gemma Butler from the Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM) who will discuss how marketing has a significant role to play when it comes to promoting and driving sustainability, whilst also needing to recognise that it is also part of the problem.

In this talk, Butler addresses how working towards a more sustainable future requires every part of the stakeholder chain to come together, and it is now more important than ever for brands to communicate their responsible and sustainable practices.

Butler will also cover how sustainability is taking marketing back to its core purpose around strategy, brand and communication and there is now an opportunity for marketing to change both the conversation and behaviours, internally and externally.
