Key points for companies
Research which “asks” are most viable to demonstrate the value of the L/JI to advancing related government goals.
By working with a national or global platform to engage consumer country governments, companies can leverage additional resources at relatively low cost to themselves.
External conditions that improve likelihood of success
- Staff capacity (including from corporate government relations/public affairs offices or from leadership of the L/JI) to support company engagement with consumer country governments
The business case for this intervention
- Companies that effectively engage consumer governments can advance the goals of the L/JI, secure additional resources (thus lowering internal costs), and expand additional government support for other L/JIs with which the company may work.
- Companies improve their reputations and credibility not only with consumer country governments, but also with producer country governments and NGOs involved in L/JIs.
