The UK General Election - 4th July 2024


Public Affairs in the Energy and Sustainability sectors

In an economy transitioning to net zero emissions, all sectors must position themselves for success by communicating how they are addressing sustainability challenges, and harnessing the massive opportunities arising through the societal transformation currently underway.

PLMR is one of the UK’s leading firms working in energy and sustainability. We are the Renewable Agency Association’s Communications Agency of the Year 2019. We are shortlisted at the BusinessGreen Leaders Awards 2020. We help organisations not just to tell their story, but to engender and influence conversations about the issues that matter to them.

We understand how to cut through the noise and achieve outstanding results for clients ranging from FTSE 100 giants to innovative start-ups leading the march towards a greener, cleaner and more efficient economy. We work with energy generators, utilities, research institutes and government departments to help communicate the difference they are making to a sector undergoing rapid change.

Outside energy, we work across a wide range of sustainability issues – helping retailers and manufacturers engage with the circular economy, educating policymakers on water scarcity, and helping reshape the UK’s food system through our work on the National Food Strategy.

Our team of experts has worked at the highest levels of media and politics. It contains an ex-Special Adviser to the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change alongside former MPs and senior civil servants, backed by a wealth of strategic communications and campaigning experience including past heads of NGOs, former national journalists, and PR and public affairs consultants consistently recognised as some of the best in the industry.

Our regional offices in Glasgow, Birmingham and the East of England also give us an edge in producing highly attuned local campaigns, including helping to obtain planning permission for new energy developments. We offer practical guidance and straightforward communications campaigns that developers need to successfully engage with local communities, stakeholders and decision-makers; helping to deliver consent for projects in wind, solar, biomass, energy-from-waste and beyond.

As the UK seeks a green recovery from Covid-19, and with a raft of both investment and regulatory change on the way, there has never been a more important time for organisations operating in energy and sustainability to communicate with the audiences that matter to them.
