We have proved again and again the value of transparency and engagement – often in unlikely circumstances where you may be under business-threatening attack. If a business takes a confrontational stance to a special interest group, it usually turns out badly – for the business. And ignoring those groups is no better.
One of our assets is the strength of our ethics and our reputation for probity amongst opinion-formers, NGOs and industry bodies. We have a diverse network of contacts that we can call on for informal advice, advocacy and expertise. We are one of the only consultancies who can genuinely work with both the NGO and lobbying communities alongside our clients. They know we don’t ‘green-wash’ and they trust us to be the bridge that brings a result for them and benefit to the business.
We are among the most well connected consultancies in the sustainability space and, because of our strong credentials, we have relationships that span not only business-to-business but also business-to-NGO/specialist groups and business-to-government groups. We can help your organisation to map the sphere of influence and encourage strategic engagement with the right people and groups, but also defuse tensions and provide answers to seemingly intractable questions.
Conscience works to engage consumer groups and communities for businesses and the public sector, offering to build partnerships and advocacy; building bridges and repairing relationships; and resolving on-going issues or stalemates by working with both parties to find a sensible path forward for all.
