Society and Sustainability

Brands must be a force for good and a force for growth through action. This means using marketing to promote equality and inclusion to achieve a better world for humanity and drive more growth and value for business.

Foundational to this success are solutions that leverage increasingly sophisticated measurement systems, partnerships with primary media and platforms, and clear accountability for brand safety and reduced ad fraud.

The ANA’s Approach

We enable brands to be a force for good and a force for growth and stand at the forefront of the latest research and industry-wide initiatives driving diversity, equality, inclusivity, and brand safety across the marketing industry.

CMO Growth Council

The CMO Growth Council was established in 2018 to assemble the most vibrant, diverse, and dynamic force of chief marketers from some of the world’s most successful brands. Its ultimate aim is to support the international community with a first-of-its-kind roadmap for driving business growth through marketing.
