Psst, not a word about sustainability!

The video below explains how a commitment to sustainability can succeed. It clearly shows why communication is vital, where the thematic emphasis of in-house communication work lies and how to keep stakeholders from suddenly opting out when faced with so much communication about sustainability.

The content comes from a presentation by Andreas Renggli in early February 2012 at a business event called 3rd Wirtschaftsapéro on the topic “Credible and Profitable.” The event took place in the factory building of Jomos AG in Balsthal before an audience of 200 interested individuals from business, politics and public administration. It was sponsored by the association Region Thal, Solothurn Agenda 21, the industrial and trade association IHV-TGB, and the Solothurn Economic Development Agency.
