All ESG efforts need to be connected to the company’s purpose and values to succeed and be authentic. In our Focus offering, we work with leadership teams in a workshop setting to devise “Focus Statements” from which to create compelling stories, make strategic decisions and measure impact. These core organizational principles include a purpose, which is supported by mission, vision, values and behaviors statements. Aligning ESG efforts to a purpose and values helps you to mobilize internal support, to gain the credibility, reputation, and differentiation you seek, and to build trust with all those counting on you to make a change.
We help you build consensus, buy-in and engagement among key
stakeholders by effectively communicating your ESG commitment
and helping lead internal change management communications
from a purpose perspective. We like to think about “activating”
ESG within a culture, because while there are many traditional
communications approaches (think of the proverbial poster on
the wall), communications in itself doesn’t ensure adoption
or the right behaviors to make ESG initiatives successful.
We provide strategic communications planning and execution
to successfully guide cultural transformations as they relate
to ESG issues (i.e. core values embodiment, safety, diversity
& inclusion, human capital management, etc.).
Developing a Sustainability Report is not for the faint of heart. It requires internal cohesion, an understanding of GRI standards, material relevance of ESG issues to your business and clear objectives about what the report will achieve. Savage helps you effectively communicate your ESG commitment and results in both printed and digital sustainability reports. We can help you report to GRI standards and meet the requirements of reporting in today’s world. We work with companies that are just getting started and those that are ready to take their reports to the next level.
We provide holistic and individualized services to clients looking to align, activate and communicate on their ESG efforts. We connect an organization’s purpose and values to its ESG narrative. We help leaders activate ESG within their companies. And, we provide fresh design for print and digital sustainability reports. This work embeds ESG within cultures and operations, and showcases the hard work each organization is doing to meet the needs and expectations of shareholders, employees, customers and the public.
