Public Relations Strategies for Sharing Your Green Energy Initiatives

In the dynamic world of business, leveraging public relations to communicate your green energy initiatives is a strategic imperative that goes beyond mere publicity.  Particularly in the construction industry, it’s about reshaping the narrative and letting your stakeholders know you are committed to sustainable practices.

Stakeholders today recognize that your business is intricately linked to the environment it operates in and the society it serves. In the Deloitte Global Boardroom Program’s latest Frontier survey, both board members and executives agree stakeholder trust is important and think it’s their responsibility.

Public relations experts, like those here at Ripley PR, can help you develop a messaging strategy that will build stakeholder trust and inform and influence the public, so taking the lead on being transparent with a well-planned construction public relations plan will go a long way in building trust.

When developing your messaging and content strategy, you’ll want to be sure it’s centered around educating all your stakeholders, such as investors, employees, customers and the public at large.

Your PR team will guide you in the development of your messaging, but here is a list of things that you’ll want to ensure it portrays:

  • Be as transparent as possible with your communication. Your messaging should demonstrate accountability and be open and upfront about how you mitigate your company’s environmental, economic, and social impact.

 

  • Your messaging should educate the public about the benefits, feasibility, and reliability of your company’s green energy initiatives, reducing any negative perceptions that may exist.

 

  • While shaping public opinion is not an overnight achievement, your public relations strategy should work to inform and shape positive perceptions among stakeholders.

 

  • The messaging should bridge your mission and values and tell an authentic story about the challenges you’ve overcome and share achievements, such as earning awards or certifications related to your green energy initiatives.

Building and maintaining public trust through PR is not a sprint – it’s a long game. Creating a PR strategy that builds trust with your stakeholders will give you credibility, maintain your reputation through inevitable crises and provide value over time.
