The tagline is “The energy upgrade that pays for itself,” highlighting Metrus’s established track record of providing customers with energy efficiency solutions without any upfront costs. The campaign will integrate targeted digital strategies and creative initiatives to reinforce the company’s commitment to spurring climate action and helping large organizations decarbonize faster. Key messages will include Metrus’s unique ability to unlock energy savings to fund upgraded, energy-efficient equipment, driving impact across operations, sustainability goals and financial performance.

Primarily targeting sustainability and energy decision-makers at large organizations with 24/7 energy use, Metrus plans to run the campaign for the remainder of the year through various social media channels, including LinkedIn, Facebook and Instagram, with additional paid search on Google. The focal point of the campaign is a :60 brand video that leans into the human benefits of Metrus’s solution and how Metrus helps make companies, and their buildings, better not just for the planet but for occupants as well.

“Our objective with this campaign is to convey the numerous advantages of partnering with Metrus through clear and uncomplicated messaging," said Maureen Bitter, VP, Marketing at Metrus. "It is widely recognized that energy efficiency measures alone have the potential to substantially curtail energy consumption and GHG emissions, bringing us closer to achieving our national climate objectives. In this context, we believe that this is a great opportunity to heighten awareness of our company’s sole purpose: serving as a financial bridge to getting energy efficiency projects funded that might otherwise get postponed, or not done at all.”

“It is heartening to see Metrus, a key partner within the Mission Efficiency ecosystem, bring a new emotion-driven marketing campaign forward” said Brian Dean, Head of Energy Efficiency at Sustainable Energy for All. “We believe focusing on emotion-based decisions is the best way to convey the importance of energy efficiency to customers. Throughout its history, Metrus has led the way in the efficiency industry and this campaign will broaden awareness around the importance of energy efficiency in driving progress on climate action – locally and globally.”
