It’s Cool To Care – Building A Sustainable, Community-Driven Impact Brand
Digitally native brands are slowly starting to learn some surprising lessons as their businesses scale. A major one is that selling as much product as possible by any means necessary does not guarantee sustainable, long-term success.
But the most enterprising brands have found a new edge: their communities.
In this session, Katrine Lee Larsen – Founder & CEO of Copenhagen Cartel - will share powerful insights into how the organisation has disrupted the swimwear and athleisure spaces since 2020 by:
Cultivating an engaged, passionate community built by rolling out a series of environmentally positive activations such as a “clean up tour” which removed 2 tonnes of plastic from The North Sea.
Moving into retail and using its flagship store as a hub for educating customers on the merits of environmentally conscious consumerism.
Capturing the attention of the local and national mainstream media with impactful purpose marketing strategies.
