Developed with our agency partners in Javelin, this activity launched in 2020 as phase two of a campaign to assert our new brand positioning. Our category defining approach has to date been the most successful campaign we have deployed since our launch in this market many years ago. It is also part of an ongoing journey as we seek to invite increasing numbers of customers to enjoy the benefits of wind energy. And to join us in changing the world. This is Generation Green.

PTSB faced significant targets, with no brand investment, 3rd year advertising an existing offer and now faced our greatest challenge; Covid led to reduced demand and business decline, leading us to go dark for months. This was our opportunity to pivot and deliver our promise to be a trusted ally and support customers on their home-buying journey. It was time to deliver a distinctive integrated strategy bringing our new positioning ‘Permanent Support’ to life, maximising our communications to outperform investment and deliver commercially. Delivered through an insight-led customer strategy and comprehensive campaign we demonstrated our promise resulting in exceptional business growth.
