One strategy, two communication axes

As a first step, Switch started by working with DG Environment on a three-year communication strategy. We teamed up to redefine the objectives, the messages, the communication axes and then translate them into a concrete action plan.

This strategy includes two axes: the main strategic axis was to address the companies by inviting them to be more accountable and involved and highlighting the fact that the consumer will see this proactive stance as something positive. As for consumers, communication is based on the recognition of the shared responsibility of public authorities, companies and consumers in going beyond a discourse that is solely based on individual actions.

The campaign unfolded in three phases to the two audiences. A ‘hooking phase’ was followed by an awareness phase and then a mobilisation phase.

For budgetary constraints, the strategy was mainly web-focused. The campaign website served as the meeting point for these different audiences. The various tools developed during the three stages all pointed in the website’s direction.

Foster understanding through animation

In a second phase, we created 5 informative animated videos aiming to foster the understanding of our shared responsibility in protecting biodiversity. The idea here was to get the public to make a connection between everyday consumer products and the consequences they can have on biodiversity.

Videos to give pioneers more exposure

The third and final phase highlighted the initiatives taken by Belgian companies pioneering in biodiversity. The aim was to encourage other companies to follow suit and to get consumers to stimulate the commitments made by these companies.

The Switch team understood our messages and our expectations and was able to turn them into a reality. They gave us the right tools, quality work and
