Talking Points

In Economic Flux: Strategies Amidst Shifting Trends.

The rise of purpose-driven brands presents opportunities for outdoor industry growth. It also poses challenges for traditional businesses that have yet to embrace sustainability and social responsibility. Companies that fail to adapt to changing consumer preferences risk losing market share to more socially conscious competitors. However, this shift also opens doors for innovation and differentiation. Outdoor brands that proactively integrate purpose into their business models can strengthen customer loyalty, attract new markets, and drive long-term success in an increasingly values-driven economy. The Methodology of the Quadruple Bottom Line goes beyond traditional financial metrics to include social, environmental, and ethical considerations toward Conscious Capitalism.

Deloitte Consulting LLP’s 2019 Global Human Capital Trends survey found that, for the first time ever, CEOs named societal impact as the top success factor for annual performance.

Psychological Shift Towards Conscious Capitalism.

Consumer behavior in the outdoor industry is undergoing a psychological shift towards conscious capitalism, driven by a growing awareness of the interconnectedness between business practices, social impact, and personal well-being. This shift is fueled by psychological factors such as increased empathy, heightened social consciousness, and a desire for purposeful consumption in a collective identity. Consumers seek brands that align with their values and contribute positively to society, reflecting a deeper psychological need for meaning, environmental stewardship, and fostered connection in their purchasing decisions.

A majority of American consumers (55 percent) believe it’s important for companies to take a stand on key social, environmental, and political issues.

Strategic Pathways to Purposeful Branding.

In the dynamic landscape of the outdoor industry, brands are urged to transcend mere profit motives and embrace humanistic values, that resonate with the evolving psyche of consumers. The journey towards purposeful branding requires a mindful alignment between company intention and consumer perception. To effectively navigate this terrain, brands can follow the 4 Stages of Purpose Integration: Articulation, Infusion, Amplification, and Movement of Stakeholders and Consumers.

In 2019, Deloitte found purpose-driven brands capture more market share and grow on average three times faster than their competitors. They also report 30% higher levels of innovation and 49% higher levels of workforce retention.(2020)

Media’s Audience-Centric Alignment.

Providing in-depth analysis demonstrates a media company's understanding of complex business concepts, commitment to informing its audience, and exploring important trends. Partnerships resulting from coverage can lead to collaborations, content co-creation, or sponsored events, enhancing the media company's brand and reach.

Research from GreenPrint found that nearly 80% of consumers are more likely to purchase a product labeled as environmentally friendly, with 77% of those surveyed saying they are concerned about the environmental impact of products they buy.
