Green Marketing Gold: How brands can craft impactful content with minimal waste |

But where should businesses start?

Creating low-waste and impactful marketing content involves adopting environmentally conscious practices at every step of the content creation process. Here are a few that businesses should consider:

  • Digital Focus: Embrace digital platforms for advertising and marketing materials. This reduces the need for printed collateral, cutting down on paper waste and the environmental impact of printing processes.
  • Virtual Production/CGI/VR: Virtual Production, CGI and VR techniques reduce the need for traditional photo/film shoots. This also reduces travel and associated carbon emissions and allows for the creation of super relevant content and more immersive experiences.
  • Marketing Orchestration: Sync your data, technology, platforms, workflows, channels and content to create a connected pipeline that drives time, cost, and effort efficiencies, while reducing waste and energy. Thiswill facilitate personalised content that enhances the customer experience and strengthens brand loyalty.
  • Collaborate with Sustainable Suppliers: If you require physical materials, work with suppliers who prioritise sustainability. Look for partners that use eco-friendly materials, have environmentally responsible production processes, and minimise packaging waste.
  • Digital Asset Management (DAM): Implement a DAM system to organise and store marketing materials efficiently. This reduces the likelihood of duplicate content creation and makes it easier to repurpose existing assets.
  • Offset Carbon Emissions: If your marketing activities involve travel or other carbon-emitting processes, consider investing in carbon offset programmes to neutralise your environmental impact.

The power of AI to help in this area mustn’t be overlooked either. If businesses invest in training employees to have a solid understanding of AI technologies, its applications and potential impact on sustainability efforts, AI could be transformative for the industry. Just one example of its many capabilities includes natural language processing and image recognition, which can streamline content creation processes and create more efficient workflows, reducing the need for excessive revisions and iterations. The result is a more streamlined content creation process that minimises waste, both in terms of time and resources. By harnessing the power of AI, businesses can optimise campaigns, reduce waste, and elevate the effectiveness of their strategies. We call this Content Intelligence.

And to create real change in the industry, collaboration is a must when it comes to AI-driven climate action. Data and insights must be shared with businesses, research institutions, and governments to accelerate the development and implementation of effective AI solutions. Ethical and sustainable AI practices must also be prioritised, ensuring transparency in how AI algorithms operate and make decisions. And responsible AI practices must be embraced to build trust with stakeholders and contribute to a positive impact on both the environment and society. With a strategic, informed, and ethical approach, businesses can harness AI’s full potential to effectively address environmental challenges through education and collaboration.

We have manifested this idea in our content approach by using AI to work out which content works and which doesn’t. This means we can create meaningful content in the moments that matter and reduce linear content that isn’t used. We leverage AI to develop impactful, low-waste content, and are pioneering initiatives that resonate with eco-conscious consumers. Addressing climate change is not only a moral imperative but also a strategic advantage in meeting the evolving expectations of our clients and their target audiences. And I’m personally so excited about the prospect of AI driving innovation in our industry, enabling businesses to create content that not only captivates but also contributes to positive environmental outcomes.
