Summary

This paper will argue that whilst brands have the potential to maximize profits, and be a force for social good, it is the exception rather than the rule.

We will illustrate this exception of how brands can deliver against objectives that are seemingly at odds with each other with the story of the world's largest hygiene and cleansing brand, Lifebuoy. It developed a unique campaign for Global Handwashing Day to address the problem of the deadliest diseases afflicting the world's poorest children: pneumonia and diarrhea.
