Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Greener products are now available within every industry and are a part of our everyday lives. But they didn't get to be so ubiquitous just because they are better for the planet. Whether they were promoted as such or not, sales of green products grew because they were appreciated by a growing chorus of consumers for the value they provide—expressed as safety, comfort, good taste, safety or simply convenience.

 

This central emphasis on primary benefits is critical to winning over the mainstream consumer--and to driving overall organizational growth.  The New Rules of Green Marketing helps readers understand why value-based sustainability marketing has become a critical organizational capacity, and how readers can adopt these practices in their own organizations.  Illustrated by examples from both leading mainstream brands and the more niche-y "deep green" brands who are showing everyone else the way, the book provides practical strategies for building every aspect of a credible value-based green marketing strategy, including:

 

+ How to communicate principles with credibility and impact

+ How to avoid "greenwashing"

+ How to team up with stakeholders to maximize outreach to consumers

+ How to best take advantage of recent technological advances to further the impact

 

The New Rules of Green Marketing captures the best of the author's previous titles on green marketing and takes the content into the 21st Century. Whereas earlier works focused on readers who were less familiar with green initiatives, this work squarely focuses on a new generation of marketers who likely themselves grew up with an appreciation of environmental stewardship and who want and need to know how to connect effectively with mainstream customers.

Synopsis:

Green products have been around since the 1970s, but its only in recent years that theyve become ubiquitous. Its not because consumers suddenly prize sustainability above all. Its because savvy green marketers are no longer trying to “sell the earth”—instead theyre promoting the value their products provide: better health, superior performance, good taste, cost-effectiveness, or simply convenience. This central emphasis on primary benefits—the new rules—is critical to winning over the mainstream consumer.

The New Rules of Green Marketing helps readers understand why value-based sustainability marketing has become a critical organizational capacity and how they themselves can adopt this approach. Drawing on the latest data from leading researchers and reflecting on learnings from her corporate clients and other pioneers—including GE, Nike, Method, Starbucks, Timberland, HP, NatureWorks, Procter & Gamble, Stonyfield Farm, and Wal-Mart—Ottman provides practical strategies, tools, and inspiration for building every aspect of a credible value-based green marketing strategy. She covers using a proactive approach to sustainability to spur innovation, developing products that are green throughout their life cycle, communicating credibly to avoid accusations of “greenwashing,” teaming up with stakeholders to maximize outreach to consumers, taking advantage of social media, and much more.

This book takes the best of Ottmans previous groundbreaking work it into the 21st century. Her new rules relegate traditional “green guilt” approaches to the recycling bin of history, break green products out of their niche and, ultimately do a far better job of advancing the triple bottom line of people, profits, and planet.
