German appliance brand Miele has revealed that it is to embark on a major consumer digital marketing campaign to promote its sustainability credentials. The campaign is entitled ‘Obsessed with quality that lasts’, and will encompass activity across a broad spectrum of platforms including digital display and social media advertising, online point of sale, influencers, podcast sponsorship and PR. The campaign will evolve throughout the year and is designed to build brand awareness and communicate sustainability features and benefits across all Miele product categories.
The campaign follows the introduction in November last year of the new ‘Which? Eco Buy’ recommendation, awarded to four Miele Washing Machine products. Miele says it is the first brand to licence the new Which? Eco Buy Washing Machine accolade for use in its marketing material.
Helen Pyman, marketing director for Miele GB said: “Now more than ever, customers are increasingly wanting to reduce their carbon footprint and make better, more informed choices when it comes to buying major domestic appliances. They want to know that their appliances come from manufacturers who care about the environment, who build products that not only improve their lives, but also use less energy and are built to last so that they don’t have to be replaced often. At Miele, our philosophy is to be Immer Besser – forever better – in all that we do. The new Which? Eco Buy accolade is a highly valued, independent endorsement of everything the Miele brand stands for and we’re proud to include this in our new sustainability marketing campaign.”
Miele says that its washing machines, dishwashers and vacuums are all tested to last for the equivalent of 20 years of use.
