Brevia Consulting provides support to organisations in the Fast-Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) sector to help navigate regulatory change and political scrutiny.
Growing concerns about public health, societal issues and environmental sustainability encourage government to constantly examine the regulation of different consumer goods. Measures include restrictions on advertising, labelling and special taxes on products such as soft drinks, alcohol, and processed food. Keeping abreast of regulatory change is therefore a key challenge for any organisations operating within the industry.
Uncertainties over Brexit create additional challenges for the industry. As well as having strong links to European markets, a large proportion of the sector’s regulatory and legal framework is based on EU Directives.
Brevia Consulting offers clients within the FMCG sector straightforward political and communications support to help understand the political environment in which they operate, develop strong messages, and undertake effective stakeholder engagement.
Some of the most dramatic effects of the Covid-19 outbreak and the response measures it demands have been on modes of transport. Airlines have been grounded, discretionary domestic travel is discouraged and the use of public transport is advised against. Instead, the Government has promoted cycling and walking as a form of safe, socially distanced travel. With the consequences of the virus expected to persist for a ‘long period of time’ transport policy is shifting to keep people moving.
It has been announced that Jacobs, a Dallas headquartered energy consulting, engineering and construction services firm, has been awarded several contracts with an estimated combined value of $25 million. The contracts were awarded by Fusion for Energy (F4E), the ITER Organization and the United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority (UKAEA) in order to support leading-edge research in fusion energy.
Since the outbreak of COVID-19, EDF Energy has introduced a series of measures to ensure its employees are protected against the virus. Not only has it significantly reduced activity on its Hinkley Point C site from 4,000 to 2,000 workers, but it has also instituted extra cleaning, working from home, banning visitors, temperature checks, and bringing in more buses to allow workers to stay apart.
