Responsible businesses must engage with activism
Our expert knowledge of activist campaigning issues, policy, and discourse helps to bridge the gap between business and civil society and supports responsible business practices.
“SIGWATCH has provided invaluable insights in helping us map the key areas of activist focus and the key groups targeting our company over a given timeframe.”
At SIGWATCH, we believe activists are some of the most influential actors in society, capable of driving significant change. We also believe that is it vital that businesses engage with activism in a constructive, open-minded way, rather than seeing activists as a force to be avoided.
