Energy and environment

Topics such as renewable energy and environment policy are regularly on the political and media agenda, and Whitehouse Communications is one of the leading public relations and communications specialists in these areas. Current and former Whitehouse clients operate in the solar, battery storage, biofuel and biomass, food waste, anaerobic digestion, waste oil, onshore wind and electric vehicle sectors.

Our team provides political and communications guidance and support to energy businesses of all sizes, ranging from international corporations to small-scale generators.

One of the main Whitehouse’s clients in the environment space is the Ornamental Horticulture Roundtable Group (OHRG). The OHRG is a body of industry organisations and the UK’s leading gardening charity, which have come together to champion the value of the UK’s ornamental and environmental horticulture and landscaping industry. Whitehouse also operates the secretariat of the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Horticulture and Gardens (APPGHG) which brings together MPs and Peers who are passionate about ornamental horticulture and who want to see the industry thrive.

We work with both the OHRG and the APPGHG to demonstrate to political stakeholders the benefits and opportunities that arise from supporting ornamental horticulture. As the original ‘green economy’ sector, we engage with policymakers about how the ornamental horticulture industry can contribute to numerous government objectives including investing in the education system and technical training offers, meeting the net zero commitment by 2050, and levelling up skills and opportunities for all.

Services offered by Whitehouse include policy audit, analysis and monitoring of the regulatory, policy and political landscape and its impact on businesses and stakeholders involved in your policy area. We also provide secretariat services and event management, strategic public relations campaigns to boost visibility, knowledge and positive sentiment towards an organisation, and reputation management and crisis communications to identify reputational risks to a brand before they happen and to manage a crisis as it unfolds.
