Our research and analysis give you a detailed view of the leading players in the consumer goods (CPG/FMCG) industry and their sustainability communication strategy at both corporate brand and brand level:

  • claims and brand positioning
  • which brands are aligning with which initiatives
  • volume of activity on social platforms
  • how they rank against each other.

What exactly are they saying on social media and how do they compare to one another?

Deploying a social-first strategy, brands are entering into two-way conversations with consumers on a wide range of sustainability topics, from local social initiatives to leadership at the corporate brand level.

Consumers, investors and governments expect genuine action on sustainability from companies: their impact on the environment and social concerns, as well as ensuring the necessary governance to safeguard a sustainable future.

Our reports allow companies to benchmark themselves against comparable companies, providing easy-to-use summaries of the latest initiatives. Allowing you to decide what is genuine and what is PR.
