Zeronomics highlighted the critical role of finance in the greatest corporate challenge ever undertaken: decarbonisation.
Working with Standard Chartered, Man Bites Dog developed ‘Zeronomics: Financing the transition to a net-zero world’. This campaign positioned Standard Chartered as a thought leader by highlighting the critical role of finance in the greatest challenge ever undertaken: decarbonisation. We identified a new angle – the economics of transition to a net-zero carbon world and invented a new term to encapsulate it – Zeronomics – creating a unique platform to promote the bank’s sustainable finance capability.
Zeronomics highlighted the risk of a “lost decade” as companies postpone action on climate change and revealed that 55% of corporates are not transitioning fast enough to reach net zero by 2050, with insufficient finance the greatest barrier and the most significant transition capital shortfall occurring in emerging markets.
Man Bites Dog and Standard Chartered have won 5 awards for Zeronomics, including Best Sustainability Campaign and Best International Campaign in the CorpComms Awards.
After scooping B2B Marketing’s Best Corporate Decision-Maker Targeted Campaign, Man Bites Dog CEO, Claire Mason, sat down with David Rowlands, Head of Content at B2B Marketing, to discuss the thinking behind Zeronomics, and share how Man Bites Dog develops global thought leadership to help business brands mobilise change.
