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.
Ofgem plans to grant National Grid Electricity Transmission (NGET) £637 million to build a transmission link connecting Hinkley Point C to the grid. This is £80 million short of the NGET’s initial request of £717 million.
The Prime Minister has surprised many commentators by persuading the European Union (EU) to reopen the Withdrawal Agreement and agree a new Brexit deal. Over this weekend he may well surprise them further by getting that deal through Parliament, which will allow the UK to leave the EU on 31 October 2019.
EDF Energy has announced that the anticipated cost of Hinkley Point C has increased by £2.9 billion. This is almost a 15 per cent increase relative to the previous estimate. Project completion is now estimated to be between £21.5 billion and £22.5 billion.
