The new age of Green Marketing in Swedish forestry

University essay from Linnéuniversitetet/Institutionen för marknadsföring (MF); Linnéuniversitetet/Institutionen för marknadsföring (MF)

Abstract: The adoption of Green Marketing within the Swedish forest industry has raised questions as to why there has been an increase in implementation of the concept, and what the results have showed. After conducting eight semi-structured qualitative interviews with companies involved with forestry in Sweden, this paper has been able to showcase an in-depth analysis. The companies interviewed include a forest owner, five forestry companies, a packaging company, and a lobby initiative in Sweden. This has allowed the research to explore different perspectives in the forest industry. The answers derived from the interviews were for the most part in correlation to each other, and highlighted the similar ways to approaching Green Marketing within the Swedish forest industry. Public concern, governmental regulations, and opportunity to form strong relationships were all seen as reasonings behind the usage of Green Marketing. The Swedish forest industry has done very well in avoiding many Green Marketing mistakes, and has also showcased a strong effort in following what is known as the ‘Golden Rules of Green Marketing’.
