The bioeconomy is a concept many people are still confused by or unaware of. However, consumers are increasingly willing to spend money on products with strong environmental credentials. Bio-based alternatives with a strong sustainability narrative can help to meet growing demand for these solutions.
You are invited to join a training workshop tailored to bioeconomy SMEs on the benefits of sustainability communications and how to develop strategies to boost the marketability of your products.
- Credibility and Visibility: The cornerstones of sustainable communications
- Using more dynamic, business-oriented language
- Designing communications strategies and campaigns
- Using social media to reach a wider audience
Bioeconomy SMEs looking to market environmentally friendly products and solutions.
