Part 1: The Role of ‘Greener Marketing’ in Evolving Marketing and Driving Societal Change - John Grant, Author and the definitive ‘green marketing guy’.

In this episode we’re joined by John Grant, Author and truly, the definitive ‘green marketing guy’. Having recently read John’s latest book, ‘Greener Marketing’ - we discuss a range of topics about what ‘greener marketing’ really looks like today. John’s passion for driving an environmental and green agenda stems from the start of his career in the 90’s. We discuss some of the many projects he’s embarked upon and the role of being a marketer in ‘green land’ rather than a ‘green’ champion in marketing land. He shares his formula around green-washing, and making green ‘normal’ - the reality of driving behavioural change and the role of consumer behaviour. It’s packed with practical gems for marketers - like getting out of the ‘ivory tower’ to gain real world perspective - and much more. This episode has been split into Part 1 and Part 2 - because there was just so much to talk about, so many insights… we didn’t want to lose a drop of John’s experience and inspirational wisdom in the editing suite. Enjoy Part 1 and Part 2. For more information about Greener Marketing, John Grant, Wiley Enjoy the podcast - and any comments, questions, ideas, suggestions… get in touch.

Can Marketing Save the Planet? It’s a big question, and one our podcast sets out to explore with marketers, senior leaders, CMOs and sustainability consultants and experts. Our purpose is to drive education, share best practice, inspire and empower listeners to ask questions and importantly… start taking action. Sitting at the heart of brand, communications, stakeholders and product development, marketers have a significant role to play when it comes to promoting and driving sustainability. As marketers and business leaders developing and marketing products and services, we need to recognise that we’re part of the problem. In an age of growing authenticity and consumer demands for more transparency, it is more important than ever for brands to communicate their responsible and sustainable practices, to stand up for causes they’re passionate about and importantly, follow through on the promises they may. In our view, there’s no one better placed to effect change, align with and influence customers and drive hope for a better, more sustainable future, than an 'educated and aware', responsible marketer.
