Gaining visibility for systainabilty

Case study: How Asahi Photoproducts managed to gain visibility for their sustainabilty.

The Challenge

Asahi Photoproducts is a well-known pioneer in the development of flexographic photopolymer printing plates. The company is determined to be a leader in reducing its CO2 footprint and that of its customers. It accomplished the CO2 Measured certification issued by the Carbon Trust in 2021 for its AWP™-DEW water-washable plate. When the company decided to share the features and benefits of that plate, it looked for a tailored and informative communication strategy. 

The solution

duomedia set up a multichannel communication campaign combining owned, earned and paid content. This campaign consisted of a white paper, a PR campaign, a blog article and social media posts. 

The results
  • +50 clippings
  • 84 984 people reached via Social Media
  • 95 Whitepaper downloads
  • 662 people who visited the Asahi Photoproducts website via our social media sustainability posts
  • Coverage in 15 countries globally
A fact-based white paper devoid of greenwashing

The white paper was created by duomedia from start to finish: duomedia conducted the research, provided the copywriting and created the layout & design.

The content distribution channels: owned, earned and paid content

To promote the white paper, duomedia created content to be posted on
social media where a short video was incorporated into the posts to drive
traffic to the Asahi website and download the whitepaper. 

A PR campaign reaching an international audience

After distributing the press release to specialized global trade press journalists, duomedia followed up with a dedicated media relations campaign to identify coverage opportunities. As a result, the information on Asahi Photoproducts AWP™ water-washable solution was picked up and published internationally, with the press release and the blog article being published in 8 languages. Within two months after the news was released, it was picked up more than 50 times and broadcasted in 15 different countries, both online and in print magazines.
