Sustainability communications: how to tell credible stories and navigate the information overload
Accurate, up-to-date information is essential for accelerating the transition to sustainable development. But in today’s hyperconnected world of social media, information overload and fake news, it’s difficult to filter through all the messages and know what and whom to trust.
- As sustainability professionals, how can we make sure that our organizations’ communications are compelling and credible? How do we cut through the noise but keep our claims tenable and not misleading?
- As consumers and citizens, which questions can we ask to help us discern credible environmental claims? And what are the red flags we should look for in sustainability stories?
Join us at the next “Jeudi de Quantis” in Lausanne to hear from experts in credible sustainability communications, participate in a constructive discussion, get your questions answered and leave with ideas on what you can do to help drive positive change through credible communications.

What are the “Jeudis de Quantis” (Quantis Thursdays)?
Quantis Thursdays are free, after-work events open to everyone, organized around expert presentations on key environmental topics, followed by a Q&A and an apéritif.
Drawing on Quantis’ shared knowledge and experience, we’re looking to facilitate discussion and interaction among industry representatives, local authorities and members of the public on pressing environmental issues. The goal – plain and simple: help each participant identify the actions they can take in their personal and professional lives to drive positive change.
