Overview

We are currently eating, sleeping and breathing a new found religion of everything ‘green’. At the very heart of responsibility is industry and commerce, with everyone now racing to create their ‘environmental’ business strategy. In line with this awareness, there is much discussion about the ‘green marketing opportunity’ as a means of jumping on this bandwagon.

We need to find a sustainable marketing that actually delivers on green objectives, not green theming. Marketers need to give up the many strategies and approaches that made sense in pure commercial terms but which are unsustainable.  True green marketing must go beyond the ad models where everything is another excuse to make a brand look good; we need a green marketing that does good.

The Green Marketing Manifesto provides a roadmap on how to organize green marketing effectively and sustainably.  It offers a fresh start for green marketing, one that provides a practical and ingenious approach. The book offers many examples from companies and brands who are making headway in this difficult arena, such as Marks & Spencer, Sky, Virgin, Toyota, Tesco, O2 to give an indication of the potential of this route. John Grant creates a ‘Green Matrix’ as a tool for examining current practice and the practice that the future needs to embrace. This book is intended to assist marketers, by means of clear and practical guidance, through a complex transition towards meaningful green marketing. Includes a foreword by Jonathon Porritt.

    Great manual on marketing green products and services

    Hype won¿t do any longer; when people buy ¿green¿ they want to know they¿re making a real contribution to solving global environmental problems. Although consumers no longer buy the message of unbridled consumption, the goals of marketing and sustainability don¿t have to conflict. John Grant recreates the field of marketing for the new ¿green¿ era with ingenuity and verve. Through varied examples, he analyzes what works and why, and leaves readers with a meaningful set of tools for thinking about their own projects. getAbstract recommends this book as a provocative approach to the future of marketing in a society where sustainability matters.
