Climate Change: How to get your message across to consumers ... and what you will gain if you act nowMarch 7-8, Copthorne Tara Hotel, London, UK.
The Oxford American Dictionary?s recently published ?word of the year? is ?carbon neutral?. And in light of the recently published Stern Report, Tony Blair, UK Prime Minister, announced that ?Climate change is the single biggest long-term problem we face.? According to a survey published by Ipsos MORI, 82% of consumers want companies to make more of an effort to show what social, environmental and fair trade activities they are engaged in. That means not only having a policy in place, but communicating on this policy as well. Communicating on climate change is therefore a pressing concern for every business taking their long term growth seriously. This Ethical Corporation conference tackles the issue head-on. It is the first conference to focus exclusively on communicating climate change to consumer stakeholders. Built from weeks of primary research with industry insiders, the agenda has been set after extensive consultation with experienced climate communicators proactively working on solutions.
