We use our combined technical and communication expertise to strategize with businesses to prevent and manage health and environmental risk.
We have the specialized expertise and hands-on experience needed to respond to environmental and occupational health concerns that companies may have before they site a facility, or to better improve compliance or productivity for existing facilities. Our clients depend on our years of communication and toxicological risk experience to work with them in the think-tank stages of project development so they can minimize business risks years down the road.
While it is impossible to eliminate every risk, proactive planning can go a long way towards reducing the probability of issues down the road. And when it comes to researching risk vulnerabilities-we know where to look and what to look for. That gives us a huge advantage when you bring your siting decisions to us to assist you in the decision making process.
Maintaining a healthy relationship between its nearby community and environment is as important to a business as is a healthy balance sheet. Corporate social responsibility is defined as "...the continuing commitment by business to behave ethically and contribute to economic development while improving the quality of life of the workforce and their families as well as the local community and society at large". While businesses need certain conditions in order to operate effectively, in the long run, responding to and balancing those needs with that of the community and environment almost always proves to be the key to long-lasting, welcomed success.
Long-term Reputation Management We live in a 24-hour, often un-vetted, news cycle where opinions can launch campaigns that can damage or haunt an entity indefinitely. It only takes one delayed response, one misinformed sound-bite, one hastily typed tweet to damage years of reputation building-damage which takes a lot longer to undo that it does to appear. A good reputation exponentially increases the possibility for two-way, open communication. This is good in the normal day to day operations of a business, but crucial during a crisis situation or risk communicationoutreach program.
