The communication sector goes green – CSR > Marketing Green
Officially launched on February 1, the Positive Impact Communication Observatory aims to promote ecologically virtuous campaigns. The first visible actions are expected for 2024.
This is the beginning of a concrete transformation. On the occasion of the fourth edition of the Giverny Forum, the first annual CSR meeting, the “Communication, engine of sustainable transformation” working group proposed the creation of an Observatory of communication with a positive impact. Proposed by François d’Aubert, president of the ARPP Endowment Fund, Mercedes Erra, president of the association for actions in the communication sector, this initiative is supported by the Union des Marques and hosted by the ARPP Endowment Fund. Recognized CSR experts will soon join the founding team.
The prize for CSR campaigns
The idea is to promote good communication practices, committed and with a positive impact, in order to accelerate ecological and social transformation of our country. The perimeter of the Observatory will extend to all French media and will cover commercial and advertising communication as well as corporate communication, on societal and environmental issues. The analyzes will focus on campaigns for the general public, whose level of investment and level of audience really have a leverage effect.
