Marketing Needs New Tools, ASAP:

Introducing the Ad Sustainability Awareness Platform (ASAP)

Our partners at Brands for Good have turned to The Harris Poll to power ASAP (Ad Sustainability Awareness Platform), the newest tool in marketers’ path to assuring their consumer behaviors are driving sustainable behavior. 

Brands are working to change consumer behavior for good, but we are missing an effective standard for assessing anad’s success in communicating and driving the adoption of sustainable behavior. What if marketers had a quick, easy-to-use, and robust branding tool to track both their ads’ impact and their consumers’ engagement?

ASAP is a new, cutting edge tool co-created by leading global brands like Procter & Gamble, PepsiCo, Visa, and Nestlé Waters, that measures the power of a campaign to drive action against the nine most impactful sustainable behaviors that consumers and brands can take together. Previously only available to Brands for Good partners, this powerful platform is now open to all.

An actionable tool providing rapid assessment of the intention-perception gap and perception-action gap by providing:

  • Rich norms to understand sustainability ad performance in the context of your industry’s best-in-class ads

  • Previously unavailable data about consumer adoption of the sustainable behaviour

PepsiCo’s aspiration is to make our sustainability creative as engaging and sharable as our conventional campaigns, and this simple & easy to use tool helps us benchmark across key metrics including, the power of a campaign in driving Action. I would encourage brand managers to use this tool pre and post launch to develop compelling content that drives meaningful change.
