Generally, are you suspicious of environmental grass-root organisations/lobby organisations, for example finding them too radical or potentially disturbing business prospects?
Did you identify specific environmental organisations that might influence your strand of business? Consider organisations working with issues such as nature protection, energy conservation, climate control, biological diversity, toxic environments, health, etc.
Did you get acquainted with the specific visions, policies, plans and activities of those organisations, for example by consulting their websites?
Did you assess the influence of the organisations on decision makers, for example national and local authorities?
Did you assess the influence of the organisations on your customer groups and their purchasing decisions?
When filtering through the visions, policies, plans and activities of the organisations, can you envisage exactly what challenges your company will be faced with, if the organisations have successful?
Can you in any way turn your interpretation of the challenges from threats to business opportunities?
Can you identify any mutual interests for your company and the environmental organisations?
Did you consider to invite key actors of environmental organisations in to make a review of your company from their perspectives?
Did you consider to become a (corporate) member of such environmental organisations that may, fully or partly, be in congruence with your business interests?
Do you subscribe on newsletters from relevant environmental organisations?
