One Change is motivated by the opportunity to help our partners and clients break barriers to customer engagement and to reach targets. Our tested approach demonstrates that making simple first actions accessible, relevant and personal can set entire communities on the path toward more sustainable choices and behaviors.
At the core of our approach are tactics of community-based social marketing, with a focus on overcoming the barriers that limit the reach of traditional awareness marketing campaigns. Our approach employs some traditional commercial marketing tactics but adds direct public engagement to lay the foundation in creating new social norms in relation energy conversation behaviors in the home.
