András Wiszkidenszky, regional director of GREEN BRANDS spoke of three things in connection with brands: 1. a brand gives some kind of identity that one can relate to, 2. it substitutes the moral and spiritual beliefs that have been lost in the modern age, 3. a brand also means responsibility, because it has great power.

Kriszta Buza, managing director of StyleCommunications talked about the psychology and brand communication that make a green brand stand out from the crowd. She warned that presenting the bleak future very directly to consumers doesn’t necessarily result in their consuming less or buying only responsible brands! Good green communication uses messages that make people act, thanks to which they feel less threatened by the future and become more hopeful.

Zsófia Lakatos, president of the Hungarian Public Relations Association stressed the importance of the ‘walk the talk’ approach in communicating responsible operations: don’t just speak, act! The message must be well-worded and the channel needs to be chosen well.
