The goals of this study are to 1) study the influence of sustainable marketing activities on brand image and 2) study the influence of factors affecting consumer brand engagement and brand advocacy. The concepts of sustainable marketing activity, brand image, consumer satisfaction, consumer trust, consumer brand engagement, and consumer brand advocacy are applied in this research. 650 participants were collected by using a stratified sampling method. Results from the structural equation modeling revealed that four perceived sustainable marketing activities (economic, social, environmental, and cultural) have a significant positive influence on the brand image. Brand image and consumer trust have a significant impact on consumer brand commitment. In addition, consumer satisfaction and consumer brand engagement have a significant positive influence on consumer brand advocacy.
