    We are part of Vivendi, which means we have unparalleled access to entertainment and culture. These are incredibly powerful launch pads from which brands can make a significant cultural impact.

    Being part of Vivendi sets us apart from all the other networks. This means we think about culture, not just comms. We believe that brands rightly have a role to play in culture, how they show up in people’s lives and the wider world, how they entertain, inform, and how they make a positive impact on the wider world. This is cultural impact. This is how brands make a meaningful difference to people’s lives.

    Meaningful Brands™

    For the last fifteen years, Havas has been dedicated to understanding and building Meaningful Brands™. Its annual Meaningful Brands™ report is a landmark study of brand value which interrogates new behaviours, shifting cultural dynamics, and priorities for people, businesses and brands in a complex world. The latest study surveyed 91,000 people across 10 global markets, along with 1,300 brands across 42 categories and reveals that:


    of people surveyed are tired of brands pretending they want to help society when they just want to make money 


    think the world is going in the wrong direction, at a global level


    believe brands should be doing more to improve and support their personal health and well-being 

    The role of our Meaningful Brands™ study is to explore these shifts. At their best, meaningful brands win people’s loyalty; they occupy a bigger space in culture; they have a deeper resonance in people’s lives; and they set themselves up for the long-term win. They combine purpose with customer centricity to not just grow, but “Grow Well” - giving back to the people and the planet. In many ways the expectations of brands have never been higher. And we at Havas think that is a good thing.
