The road towards a sustainable business starts with the brand strategy. Many of Silvers strategy clients are considered to be number one in sustainability in their field, such as the grocery retailer ICA, the public transport company Nobina and Allsvenskan, the top level of the Swedish football league system. We are proud to have been part of their journey towards a sustainable business.

Just as important as the strategy is the conceptualisation: sustainability should be visible in all touch points and part of all communication, not just in occasional sustainability reports or campaigns.
