Personal values and lifestyle preferences are driving consumer behavior today more than ever. Upto now it's been hard for brands to easily assess the impact of this more holistic decision making, so we look forward to working with our Connected Partner Glow to introduce our clients to a new metric that does just that...It captures consumer perception of a brand’s ESG performance relative to competitors and can be used to help set ESG strategy or optimize current investments. It is an important metric for any business committed to doing better for people and the planet.

Consumers are increasingly inclined to consider social responsibility and sustainability values when choosing brands. This means brands both have to walk the talk, and communicate those values effectively in their marketing. Glow's Social Responsibility Score gives us insight into which brands are doing this well and enables us to track how well brands we work with are communicating their values. It's an invaluable data asset.
