The study chose twenty recognizable brands, including Nike, McDonalds and Coca-Cola, and first measured their actual environmental commitment. This was done with a Sustainability Scorecard developed by Change in conjunction with Simon Fraser University and the University of British Columbia. Companies were evaluated on 50 criteria and given a percentage score.
In the second phase of the project, Change worked with Environics Research Group to gauge the consumer perception of the environmental commitment of the same brands. We asked 2000 Canadian consumers to rate each of the brands on a 1 to 10 scale.
The two aspects of the study were then plotted on a perceptual map for an easy visual comparison.
The findings were quite surprising.
