Ethical and Sustainable Marketing: Theory, Practice & Strategies


Description of the courseEthical Marketing and Communication with a Purpose

Ethical marketing puts people first and must put their decisions under a regime of ethical criteria established in dialogue. The course is designed to convey the knowledge, tools and skills necessary to face this change and to prepare the organization to begin its path towards sustainability.

When you make a social responsibility report (rs) or when you commit to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) or perform circular economy (EC) actions you find that a fundamental part of the implementation is communication. Because not all these initiatives are launched to stay in an office, but must scale, flow and expand well beyond the company itself and translate into investment with positive returns. Plan of Ethical Marketing and Communication with Cause must include a map of stakeholders and a work of generating profiles of possible audiences. How do we communicate with them? What goals do I have for each group? What channels are best suited to reach them in the most efficient way? What resources do I have?

Objectives and Results

First, the course begins with the questions why today the sustainable management of the company is understood as a key competence. In this way, ethical marketing can only be implemented if the corresponding capabilities are developed.

The course will go into the academic literature on Ethical Marketing and Corporate Responsibility. Then the basic concepts will be known and the current Marketing concepts will be reviewed with an ethical approach. We introduce marketing 3.0 and digital CSR.

It is going to know how to measure the sustainability & Ethics of the company. Thus we enter into accounting concepts such as the Global Reporting (GRI), the Economy of the Common Good, The ISO 26000 standards and the Sustainability Balanced Score Card (SBCD). We learn what Green Washing is and how to avoid it.

The knowledge base will be deepened by presenting best practices, success stories and current challenges.

In the practical part, change tools will be known to implement an ethical marketing strategy.
