Strategic communication agency Horizon Communication Group has strengthened its commitment to sustainability, celebrating wins with existing clients Australian Packaging Covenant Organisation (APCO), Planet Ark and Love Food Hate Waste (NSW).
This year, Horizon will continue to work closely with APCO to develop and implement a behaviour change communication strategy for the Australasian Recycling Label. Horizon will also develop the communication strategy for the new ANZPAC Plastic Pact, a five-year program that will unite governments, businesses, and citizens from across Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Island nations to develop a common vision of the circular economy for plastics.
The agency has also recently executed a strategic review for Planet Ark and is working on some of the organisation’s major annual campaigns including National Tree Day and National Recycling Week – for a third consecutive year.
Horizon Communication Group founder Liz McLaughlin, Founder said: “Since we opened our doors more than 28 years ago, Horizon has been a champion of sustainability. Over the past few years our focus has been to support our clients’ communications work in waste reduction, including recycling, packaging and food waste.
“During this time, we have created a specialist team to support our work in this space and were delighted to have Alice Johnson, our sustainability expert, participate in the National Plastics Summit at Parliament House earlier this month. We look forward to working more closely with APCO, Planet Ark and Love Food Hate Waste (NSW) in 2020 to raise awareness for these challenging issues and find positive solutions that are good for both industry and the environment.”
Horizon appointed to Sir David Martin Foundation
This week, the agency has also been appointed by the Sir David Martin Foundation, a Family Foundation, that helps young people in crisis.
The Foundation is the major funder of Mission Australia’s Triple Care Farm, a safe place for over 200 vulnerable young people to get well and prepare for new opportunities. Our role will be to raise awareness for the Foundation, its 30th anniversary and the annual corporate fundraising event, Abseil for Youth.
The client wins follow a successful 2019 for Horizon, during which it also added the new home care brand, myHomecare brand and Calvary Healthcare to its portfolio.
