Environics Communications, a full-service North American public relations agency, has launched a sustainability and clean energy practice. The new practice will be led by Frank Walter, who has joined the agency as a senior vice president in the Washington, D.C., office.
The agency's sustainability and clean energy practice will provide public relations counsel and services to clients who advocate behavioral changes that help the environment, market sustainable products or services and provide alternative sources of energy for consumers and industry.
Environics launches its new practice with clients including CSA International, the Electric Drive Transportation Association (EDTA), Sustainable Development Technology Canada and World Wildlife Fund.
In addition, the agency has experience working with companies, associations and nonprofits in such areas as recycled paper and packaging, forestry and wildlife preservation, wind energy, electric energy conservation, battery technology and alternative energy sources.
‘As other agencies retrench, we are expanding this service to support the needs of our clients,’ says the agency's president, Bruce MacLellan. ‘Environmental issues, innovations and markets are evolving quickly – even in the context of the current economic climate – as individuals, businesses and governments make a healthy environment a top priority.’
Walter has more than 25 years of communications and marketing experience with Fortune 500 and start-up businesses, as well as nonprofits and advocacy organizations. His experience in sustainability and clean energy includes previous work with EDTA, Greenlight Energy and Plug-in Partners.
