Stakeholder Engagement & ESG Communications

Within the ESG agenda, the S built around ‘Social’ can also be considered to be about ‘Stakeholders’ covering a company’s social license to operate and its extended value chain, from the communities it operates within to its workforce and human capital.

Organizations taking a stance on social issues must increasingly meet the expectations of each stakeholder group for both current performance and future ambitions.   FTI Consulting helps companies develop an authentic ‘ESG’ voice with all its audiences, covering a diverse range of corporate reputation functions, from strategy design to implementation and crisis response.
