Mon Oct 10 11:25:07 GMT 2011

*Call for Papers*
*The Journal of Advertising*
*Special Issue: **=93Green=94 Advertising =96 Using Environmental Benefits =
Persuasion** *

* *

Manuscripts are being solicited for an upcoming special issue of *Journal o=
Advertising *devoted to advertising and the environment: the relationship
between advertising, consumers and green messages that have become more
frequent in the media over the past decade. =93Green=94 messages connect
environmental benefits with the purchase of products or services or with th=
adoption of specific pro-environmental behaviors in the minds of consumers.
Authors may submit empirical or theoretical papers, including literature
reviews that offer strong theoretical frameworks for research programs,
content analyses, surveys, experiments and depth interviews or other
qualitative methods. Papers that adopt a longitudinal and/or cross-cultural
perspective are encouraged.

Since 1995, the environment has become more of a hot button topic with
consumers, corporations, and policy makers. A 2010 study of advertising
practitioners indicated that more than 3/4 of surveyed practitioners planne=
to increase their advertising and marketing spending on green messages in
the future. That increase is due to numerous polls that show many U.S.
consumers are willing to pay more for so-called =91green=92 products (e.g. =
Roper Public Affairs&  Media and the Yale School of Forestry&  Environmenta=
Studies, 2008; Marketing Daily, 2010; Mintel, 2010: Integer Group and
M/A/R/C Research, 2011). This trend holds true around the world, with recen=
polls showing consumers in China (Ogilvy Mather 2011), Japan (McKinsey,
2010), and Europe (Insites, 2011) are looking for ways to integrate
sustainability in to their lifestyles. This trend is complicated, however,
with studies that show consumers=92 green intent does not always translate
into actual green purchase behaviors (Grail Research, 2009; Lindqvist,
