Global Sustainability

In a world where climate change should make sustainability top of mind, organizations need to make their products ethical and more environmentally friendly, and set precedents for future production.

The ANA has taken actions to drive social responsibility and environmental sustainability, and provide marketers easy-to-understand pathways for leveraging this critical platform for growth.

The Challenge

Whether purchasing recycled paper and plastic, eliminating toxic chemicals from products, or setting goals to reduce carbon emissions, brands have had to up their efforts to meet the standards of environmental watchdogs and conscious consumers, as well as the social media armies that stand behind them.

The ANA’s Response

The ANA is involved with an array of social and environmental initiatives, including #BrandsForGood, which is focused on developing toolkits, measurement methodologies, and other resources to deliver more sustainable solutions and help consumers see themselves as part of the solution.

A benefit of ANA membership, committee meetings feature a mix of member case studies, perspective from outside experts, and benchmarking/best-practice sharing that drive thought leadership on key industry issues. Each ANA committee meets three to four times per year and can be attended in person or remotely. Depending on the committee, 10 to 30 participants may attend — big enough for diversity of opinion, yet small enough for more intimate exchanges.
