COP Unit

COP26 1

COP Unit at FleishmanHillard

FleishmanHillard has a dedicated expert team to advise clients on their communications and public affairs engagement in the lead-up to, during and after COP27 in Sharm El Sheikh, as well as ahead of COP28 in Dubai.

Our COP Unit possesses substantial experience advising and implementing campaigns for clients on a range of environmental issues.

Even amidst global geopolitical, economic, and social challenges, the expectation for corporates, governments and multilateral organisations to act on the climate crisis has never been greater. Our own research shows that nearly 60% of people expect companies to take a stand on climate and environmental issues, an increase of 20% from 2020.

COP27 will be an important moment for the implementation of the significant agreements reached in Glasgow at COP26. Its role as Africa’s COP, with the opportunity to draw attention to the heightened impact of the climate crisis on vulnerable African countries, and the need for greater support, is particularly meaningful. The role of governments and corporates in advocating for progress will be key.


Whether it is strategic counsel, guidance on positioning or programme implementation, the unit helps clients to plan and actively reach the public, political stakeholders, business leaders or other audiences in the lead-up to, during and after COP27.

Our experienced team works with clients to help them proactively or reactively communicate their environmental commitments and actions. We provide clients with a full range of services, tailored to meet requirements. This includes landscape audits, channel audits, strategy planning, messaging, campaign strategy and positioning sessions through to the implementation of consumer, industry or political engagement campaigns. We help organisations get COP27-ready, whether that’s getting ahead and actively campaigning now or preparing to react later.
