Freya is the SVP and Strategy Director of Publicis Kaplan Thaler and is a seasoned brand planner who has devoted the past six years of her career to advising clients on how to incorporate sustainability, responsibility and social good into their brands - or brand their sustainability and CSR initiatives. Freya co-founded OgilvyEarth, and during her time there had the opportunity to work with sustainable business leaders including Unilever, the Coca-Cola Company, Delhaize Group and Tetra Pak on brand platforms designed to engage and motivate mainstream consumers to embrace more sustainable brands and behaviors.
