BMW Foundation, Luker Chocolate, North Sails, NESsT, Cogo, Epson, SENS Energy, Plastic Collective and Waterdrop.
Companies today play an increasingly important role in the transition to a more sustainable and equitable future. Whether it’s down to regulatory change, greater understanding of the climate crisis, client pressure, recruitment needs or investor questions, the PR industry has a key role to play in supporting meaningful and transparent ESG communications.
As the world’s highest scoring B Corp communications agency, Milk & Honey is driven to do business in a way that benefits people, purpose, and planet. Recently we achieved 11th place in the PR Week Top 150: ESG and have just launched the second round of our Purpose Academy, a six month programme providing pro-bono training for global charities and not-for-profit organisations.
Committed to advancing the UN 2030 Agenda, the BMW Foundation promotes responsible leadership and inspires leaders worldwide to work towards a more peaceful, just, and regenerative future. A long-time partner of the Munich Security Conference (MSC), the BMW Foundation Pavilion served as its official hub where global security was addressed through the lens of Responsible Leadership.
Milk & Honey was hired to raise the profile and create awareness of the BMW Foundation – especially amongst tier 1 press. 26 international journalists attended the event itself, representing seven different countries and resulting in 12 pieces of positive, high-impact coverage.
The total reach of coverage ended up being almost 70 million unique visitors.
NESsT is an impact investor and venture philanthropist, providing financial capital, training, and mentoring for a high-impact portfolio of small and medium-sized enterprises that are solving critical social and environmental challenges within marginalized communities. NESsT has invested $27M+, trained and supported over 30,000 entrepreneurs across 50 countries, and incubated and financed 233 enterprises sustaining more than 89,000 formal jobs.
Milk & Honey is a proud partner, driving communications programs that tell their impact story, including NESsT’s efforts to promote sustainability and climate justice and support Ukrainian refugees with long-term employment services.
Luker Chocolate is a family-owned, Colombian premium fine-flavoured chocolate producer, with strong ties to cocoa-growing communities. Born out of a long-term vision to transform lives through chocolate, Luker launched The Chocolate Dream; a collaborative sustainability plan to improve well-being, protect the environment, and increase the income of producers and communities, prioritizing the protection of children, women and young people across Colombia.
Milk & Honey was brought in to refresh Luker’s storytelling approach for media and digital, putting its purpose-led business front and centre. Three years on, we’re still working closely together to tell this compelling brand story, driving awareness, referrals and reputation amongst media and target clients.
Waterdrop’s mission is to encourage people to drink more water and less sugary beverages in order to live a healthier, longer and more sustainable life. This is combined with a shift away from single-use plastics. By providing alternative glass or steel bottles, waterdrop wants to work on a plastic-free planet.
Milk & Honey was brought in to build brand awareness and conversation around the issues of sugar and plastic. Our focus was on educating the beverages industry to the issue, alongside mobilising the consumer to become an ambassador for Waterdrop’s philosophy. Using partnerships with athletes to gain credibility, i.e. Novak Djokovic and ongoing storytelling, there was a significant increase in awareness of the brand and mission, with 175 unique pieces of coverage in the first half of 2023 alone.
