With strategic healthcare communications skills at our core, AXON Communications prides itself on a diverse team with expertise in a variety of areas.
Beyond our healthcare credentials, we also help organisations demonstrate leadership in sustainability, and successfully facilitate and accelerate behavioural change through communications, through our AXON Sustainability Group.
How do we facilitate progress through sustainability communications?
We support clients across a range of sustainability initiatives. For example, in 2013, AXON helped set up the Global Salmon Initiative (GSI) to unite the salmon farming industry, and to act as a platform for collaboration on industry-wide sustainability progress. The GSI brought together what ultimately became four animal feed, four pharmaceutical and 13 farming companies – representing about 50% of the global salmon farming industry.
In the ensuing years, working as the GSI Secretariat, we helped develop the initiative’s sustainability communications and strategy—with a focus on facilitating genuine progress in sustainability and as a result improve the reputation of the industry. In addition to this, we provided stakeholder mapping and engagement, message and narrative development, media relations, digital and social media, events, internal communications and more. We also managed data collection and developed the GSI’s sustainability report – a report in which all GSI members transparently share their sustainability data in one place – a first of its kind in the food sector.
The initiative has been a tremendous success. GSI became a highly engaged, motivated and inspiring group of collaborators, tackling global sustainability priorities within salmon farming. The WWF even referred to GSI as a “game-changer” in their Business Case article – take a read here.
Through sustainability communications and the work of each GSI member – from CEOs to veterinarians, factory suppliers and the salmon farmers themselves, GSI has driven industry-wide, global improvements in sustainability that would not have been possible if companies were operating in isolation.
