25 Sustainable Brand Initiatives

From Circular Fashion Programs to Reusable Airport Cup Programs

— July 24, 2019 — Eco
In terms of brand initiatives, the focus for many has fallen on making all facets of a business sustainable. As concern for the planet grows, consumers are more likely inclined to pay attention to products and services that give back or are mindful of effects on the environment.

Many brand initiatives are ambitious, attempting to overhaul fundamental nodes in their mode of operation. Global companies are making concrete pledges to reduce their carbon footprint by a substantial amount in a given time span. For example, Zara vows to use sustainable materials exclusively by 2025 and supplements this with plans for eco-efficient retail spaces and a recycling program for clothes, McCormick, on the other hand, is eliminating single-use plastic and transitioning to planet-friendly packaging in the same period.

These sustainability-focused brand initiatives will go a long way to making the business ethical, creating pathways to battle climate change and delight audiences.
