Stakeholder engagement

Move beyond checking a box and unleash the power of data and analytics to drive project success. We take a full lifecycle approach to stakeholder engagement, leveraging digital capabilities to understand public sentiment—and using that early analysis to shape a winning message.

Stakeholder engagement for environmental projects is often viewed as a required but limited activity, conducted in the middle of a project to satisfy compliance regulations. But we know that stakeholder engagement can—and should—be so much more. With 1,000+ in-house engagement, outreach, communication and PR practitioners, our teams work under a single mission-driven framework to deliver a holistic approach tailored to any project.

Rely on cross-industry, deep-bench expertise

Our experts go beyond the surface to provide comprehensive analysis and stakeholder engagement, drawing across sectors from environment, climate resilience, data science and analytics, strategy, and marketing. We build next-level stakeholder participation programs by working with diverse teams that understand what it takes to develop strong-engagement opportunities for key audiences, solicit input, and shape a project that reflects community interests.

Execute the full lifecycle

Early engagement is critical to inform, educate, engage, and evolve as you connect with targeted communities. Communicating early and often helps keep projects on schedule and defensible, and fosters long-term community relationships. From analysis to development and execution, our teams work at all project stages to ensure holistic engagement and on-time delivery. Get ahead of the issues through a comprehensive, step-by-step approach that provides data for decision-makers as projects take shape.
