Communicating sustainability

Striving for business success without negatively impacting the environment or society should be an aim for us all. At Landmarks, we help our clients lead the way, as a trusted partner in sustainability communications, communication strategy and ESG Reporting.

We have been communicating ESG topics for over 15 years. We were there at the creation of the Danone Ecosystem Fund, developing Danone’s Sustainability Report (incorporating GRI Standards) in 2009. This – our first Sustainability Report – was awarded “Best Sustainable Development Report” in France.

Investors are increasingly considering Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) as part of their analysis process to identify material risks and growth opportunities. We are supporting GBL, expanding the focus on ESG in their annual report and ensuring compliance with the Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive.

Projects developed by the Danone Ecosystem Fund support sustainable sourcing and the promotion of healthy drinking and eating habits wherever Danone operates in the world.

Our trade association clients have been among the first to define their objectives towards climate neutrality.

In response to the European Commission’s Roadmap for moving to a competitive low-carbon economy in 2050, we helped Cepi ‘Unfold the Future’ – the forest fibre industry’s roadmap to a low-carbon bio-economy. Looking at trends in consumer behaviour and consumption, it outlines the technologies and policies required to deliver the best value from sustainable, renewable and recyclable raw materials and transform the industry.

Similarly, Cefic’s mid-century strategy looks at ways that technology can be harnessed to improve recyclability within the chemicals industry. It introduces far-reaching ideas, suggesting that – thanks to blockchain technologies – chemicals could be leased and not bought, tracked throughout their lifetime and safely recycled. We continue to help Cefic through reporting of the chemical industry’s sustainability performance and progress towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

The forest fibre industry is committed to achieving climate neutrality in Europe by 2050.
Blockchain promises a radical improvement in transparency and traceability of individual molecules throughout their life cycle. Cefic are leading the European chemical industry as they become true ‘Molecule Managers’.

Still in the chemicals sector, SusChem inspire innovative sustainable solutions through collaboration between industry, SMEs and academia. SusChem’s Strategic Innovation and Research Agenda outlines their strategic priorities towards 2030, with links to Horizon Europe and beyond. 

Some of our clients are delivering the tools to help their industry improve sustainability. TfS is the de facto global standard for environmental, social and governance performance of chemical supply chains. We developed their Communication Strategy, analysing internal and external perception, developing brand fundamentals and direction for communications enabling TfS to increase visibility and membership over the next five years. More recently, Landmarks helped TfS produce their trailblazing Product Carbon Footprint (PCF) guideline; a comprehensive approach to measuring – and ultimately reducing – the PCF of products with application well beyond the chemical industry.

On a pragmatic level, iomob’s mission has been to support climate action by making sustainable mobility easily available and accessible through a mobility-on-demand platform (find out more about our work in the mobility sector here).

Developing and measuring sustainability is certainly a challenge, but one that offers clear benefits – both reputational and financial. Get in touch to see how our unique experience of sustainability communication can help you make the most of these opportunities.
