This course aims to familiarize the students, as future marketers and entrepreneurs, with the importance of the sustainability marketing approach in the XXI century. It tries to explain how sustainability and marketing fit together, how sustainability marketing differs from traditional marketing in terms of the basic marketing concepts such as: product, price, place and promotion. Nowadays it is not enough for the businesses to create needs to stay long enough on the market. The ultimate marketing objective should not be only to satisfy the consumers’ needs profitably but to take the huge responsibility for the whole society and the planet.
Some other issue will be discussed such as:
1) What are the greenest global brands in the world?
2) Why do more and more companies nowadays engage in sustainability marketing campaigns?
3) What is a sustainable packaging? How should we read the eco-labels? Are they useful and to what extent ?
4) What is the difference between greenwashing and sustainable communications?
If you are passionate about the sustainability idea, especially in the marketing context, I will be happy to "welcome you on board" and to prove you that sustainability marketing is neither a myth, nor an oxymoron though there are still many ways for improvement. If you expect some sophisticated measurements and calculations this course is definitely not for you: the major approach for this course will be: "Learning-by-thinking!"
