Although we work with a variety of alliance, association, business, coalition, foundation and NGO leaders on a number of issues, we focus on energy, environmental and equity communications.

We help our clients build, create, grow and nurture their organizations by addressing their energy, environmental and equity communications challenges.

Energy Communications 


As a communications consideration, energy is about much more than "just" where the energy comes from to power our homes and businesses or how that system works. Energy is the lifeblood of the global economy and has the power to hinder or help the worldwide environment. It's all encompassing. Communications efforts about it are increasingly important to business, government, advocates and consumers. 


In the context of communications, we define the term "energy" broadly: it includes energy policy and regulation, energy efficiency, renewable energy, generation and transmission, cleantech, transportation, construction and economic development and other key industries that produce or use energy.


In his more than 25-year career in Washington, Ben has written policy on these issues, advised clients on numerous topics in these areas and developed and managed national campaigns advocating for programs affecting energy and related industries. 


RENEWPR works with association, alliance, coalition, corporation, foundation, NGO and other clients to help restore common sense to communications about these essential issues. 

Environment Communications


Environmental policies and practices have evolved from a topic addressed only by committed advocates in big cities to a business consideration leading Fortune 500 companies to commit to emissions reductions in response to global climate change. The "environment" is a topic of daily conversation and a prime motivator of policy, regulation and business decisions.


We consider "environment communications" to be as wide-ranging as the impact our daily actions have on the environment: it includes environmental policy and regulation, climate change, sustainability, clean air, natural resource and land use, historic preservation, wildlife protection, water use and reuse, and recycling. 


Over the past 25+ years, Ben has helped enact policy on national monument designations and private land preservation, worked with wildlife advocates to promote responsible solutions to transportation challenges, and led national and international efforts to focus attention on climate change, sustainability, clean air and wildlife protection.


RENEWPR works with association, alliance, coaltion, corporation, foundation, NGO and other clients to help restore common sense to communications about these vital topics.


Energy and environmental businesses and organizations increasingly realize that addressing challenges like climate change, clean air and public lands protection won’t be successful without understanding that we are all affected by these changes and we all need to be part of the conversation about addressing them. And the most responsible and effective among them are working to ensure that equity – the concept that everyone has the opportunities, resources and support they need to participate fully in society – is not just a buzzword, but an ongoing business imperative. 

As a certified LGBT Business Enterprise, we understand how to engage audiences on LGBTQ issues and opportunities. As a founding member of The Change Agencies, we collaborate with a group of other agency owners in the first and only national network of independently owned and operated multicultural and LGBT communications firms to address a wide range of multicultural challenges and opportunities. 

For us, equity communications means helping businesses and organizations determine, promote and communicate their advocacy for equal access and opportunity to media, forging partnerships between advocacy groups and companies and organizations and working with clients to appropriately engage with diverse audiences. 

As part of The Change Agencies, 

RENEWPR works with association, alliance, business, coalition, foundation, NGO and other clients to help restore common sense to communications about this fundamental responsibility.

We always enjoy working with Ben: he has deep experience in energy communications and is motivated and enthusiastic about the success of his clients. He understands what organizations need to do and say to communicate effectively and he knows how to work with them to build and conduct compelling communications programs.
