We hear a lot about ‘purpose’ - and indeed, from an advertising perspective, brands have to be super cautious about coming across as ‘greenwashing’. But purpose isn’t a new concept of course - and in this podcast, we’re joined by senior marketer Paul Frampton, to discuss the role purpose has played in marketing and advertising - and the role marketing plays in driving sustainability. Paul is the International President for Control v Exposed, a marketing services consultancy and addressable media specialist with responsibility for EMEA & APAC. Paul is an experienced business leader and one of the UK’s defining voices in disruption and marketing. He was previously CEO of a hospitality tech scale-up, Tink Labs, scaling the business from 20 to 200 across EMEA. Prior to that, Paul was Group CEO for Havas Media Group, responsible for a £100m turnover, 900 people organisation.

Can Marketing Save the Planet? It’s a big question, and one our podcast sets out to explore with marketers, senior leaders, CMOs and sustainability consultants and experts. Our purpose is to drive education, share best practice, inspire and empower listeners to ask questions and importantly… start taking action. Sitting at the heart of brand, communications, stakeholders and product development, marketers have a significant role to play when it comes to promoting and driving sustainability. As marketers and business leaders developing and marketing products and services, we need to recognise that we’re part of the problem. In an age of growing authenticity and consumer demands for more transparency, it is more important than ever for brands to communicate their responsible and sustainable practices, to stand up for causes they’re passionate about and importantly, follow through on the promises they may. In our view, there’s no one better placed to effect change, align with and influence customers and drive hope for a better, more sustainable future, than an 'educated and aware', responsible marketer.
