Selling Out to Saatchi & Saatchi S

On January 31, 2008, FastCompany.com reported: "Those still on the fence about the sellout status of our September coverboy Adam Werbach--the youngest ever Sierra Club president who's now doing sustainability work for Wal-Mart--are about to be taken for another surprise twist. This morning Werbach announced that his San Francisco sustainability consultancy, Act Now, has been scooped up by none other than the lovemark-man himself: Saatchi & Saatchi's Kevin Roberts. The new company, called Saatchi & Saatchi S, in which Werbach will remain CEO, plans on bringing sustainability to the ad agency's clients, which include A-listers like P&G, Toyota, and Visa. [1]

Act Now and Wal-Mart

According to its website, "The Personal Sustainability Project (or “PSP”) was designed by Act Now to educate Wal-Mart and Sam’s Club employees, or Associates, on sustainability in a meaningful way to improve their health and well being, foster widespread community engagement and drive cultural change throughout the organization. ... Act Now’s challenge was to develop a communications strategy as novel and engaging as the PSP program itself."[2]
