Green marketing has evolved from a buzzword to becoming an essential part for brands and public organisations that want to thrive despite these trying and challenging times.  

What Is Green Marketing?

Green marketing is the term used to refer to strategies that highlight the environmental benefits of a product or service. And it is just one of the many components in the ever-growing movements urging for everyone to be more responsible on how their actions affect the environment.  

Why Green Marketing is Important?

Aside from helping the general public understand why your organisation is choosing the path for a more sustainable lifestyle, green marketing enables you to educate and inform people about your eco-friendly efforts and possibly join you in doing eco-friendly programmes.

With green marketing, you can amplify your calls explaining why actions designed to protect the environment from further degradation are necessary. 

Singapore Government Organisations Gear Towards Green Marketing

Green marketing enables members of the public sector to get the word out about their latest policies and efforts on going green, fast and to a large audience.  

Below are some examples on how government agencies in Singapore leveraged green marketing to inform, educate and ultimately convince their audience to go green together.  

NEA Raises Public Awareness on Their Eco-Friendly Effort Via Ads 

When building an eco-friendly image for your organisation, it is important that you highlight your message about sustainability to the community, and what environmental initiatives you have developed in achieving it.

One way of doing this is to carry out a media campaign to raise awareness among the public. 

The National Environment Agency (NEA) of Singapore recently launched its new E-Waste Recycling Campaign and they leveraged both offline and online advertising to broaden their reach in a short span of time.

Leverage the Power of Social Media to Spread the Word About Your Eco-friendly Programmes

Social media continues to be an efficient means to communicate directly with people inclined to go green and actively take actions in saving the environment. And conversations about sustainability move at the speed of light on social networking sites. 

To sum it up, these serve as opportunities for agencies to connect with the public and engage with them, potentially expanding your reach, and increasing awareness on your eco-centered initiatives.  

NEAs E-Waste Recycling campaign is a great example wherein they maximised social media to promote their new program that aims to convince more Singaporeans in properly disposing their unwanted appliances and gadgets.  

They launched engaging ads on Facebook and Instagram for the dissemination of their eco-friendly message.

Engaging and Informative Green Contents Are Essential

Public organisations should always remember the power of engaging and informative content in connecting with their audience. After all, you don’t want to waste resources on a lackluster eco-campaign that the people would likely forget in the next couple of days.  

Engagements will definitely help build online presence about your environmental programmes. Take a cue on how the Public Utilities Board (PUB) raised the importance of conserving Singapore’s water supply with a series of Facebook contests called ‘Count with Water Wally’.

Participants were encouraged to subscribe to PUB’s YouTube channel, tune in and pay attention on the videos for a chance to win rewards such as vouchers and Water Wally merchandises. In this way, PUB not only taught people to value potable water but also making the whole learning experience fun.
