A. The main facts about the activities of the company.

QUIERO is a team of people who believes in what they do and they do it through a marketing consultancy specialized in sustainability. They like to define marketing as “that tool which invites people to take a decision”. For them, their decision is totally clear: to save the world, it is to say, enjoy it, take care of it and respect it. This is the reason why they only work with projects whose interests are common with their interests.

They also help Unicef to improve and expand their relationship with companies. They have created “vegetable gardens” in
the center of Madrid and in Trina’s office, in order to help the company to enrich Trina’s value added proposal “A more natural attitude to life” and making it tangible, carrying out awareness campaigns among the relevant interest groups.

B. The Ethical challenges this company is addressing.

Usually, marketing companies try to earn a lot of money through advertisement that is not always ethical or respectful. In order to generate profitability marketing companies focus on finding a great idea to publicize and attract the public’s attention.
