Living more sustainably is an aspiration for almost everyone. Myriad studies tell us consumers want to make choices that are better for people and planet. But there is a big gap between intention and action. In many cases, it comes down to “if I knew, I would” – consumers’ lack of understanding of how certain acts – such as eating less red meat or washing your clothes in cold water instead of hot – actually help the planet.
In this podcast, Porter Novelli’s Sandy Skees and Lisa Unsworth share some eye-opening data from their agency’s recent report, “The Gap Between Say + Do: The Sustainability Engagement Spectrum.” They drill deep into many specific behavior types and attitudes that, once identified, can inform PR efforts. And in doing all this, they give comms pros – both as brand representatives and as citizens of the planet – invaluable inspiration and education to close those gaps and help their organizations be true leaders in the space by inspiring and educating consumers as never before.
