Stantec’s Inside SCOPE shortlisted for Chartered Institute of Ecology and Environmental Management (CIEEM) Award

Inside SCOPE is a finalist for the Action 2030 Award 2022


Stantec is delighted to announce that its communication campaign, Inside SCOPE, has been shortlisted for a Chartered Institute of Ecology and Environmental Management (CIEEM) Award. Inside SCOPE is a finalist in the Action 2030 Award category. This award seeks to recognise individuals or organisations who have had or are having the most impact in raising awareness, engaging others and/ or leading action in relation to the climate emergency and/or the biodiversity crisis.

Last November, as momentum built up for the world’s largest climate conference COP26, - and the one described as “humanity’s last chance to prevent catastrophic climate change” – it was anticipated that the level of ‘noise’ would be difficult to manage, breakdown, and understand when presented with so much information. Stantec’s climate change and social value team also knew that the information would be massive amounts of complex, scientific messaging, so Inside SCOPE was the approach to filter the essential information and act as a scientific knowledge transfer broker for clients.

To help consolidate this noise and information overload, Inside SCOPE was launched in November 2021 – an internal and external communications campaign – to present and share the discussions, pledges, commitments, and political speeches in a simpler format. The communications strategy included issuing across two Stantec websites, a social media programme, engaging with key account managers, global communications team, key clients, and business and trade networks.  

The campaign consisted of an (ongoing) The SCOPE podcast, two external online publications called Inside SCOPE [Issue 1 and Issue 2] and a two-week internal Climate Festival featuring panels, speakers, hosted by our Developing Professionals Group (DPG) employee resource group.

Two Inside SCOPE publications featured commentary from 47 Stantec specialists, representing every continent, and published each week on Stantec’s website, a UK regional networking website focusing on the built environment, a marketing newsletter, and social media. At time of the award submission, Inside SCOPE 1 was the most read piece of content in 2021, with over 800 views. Inside SCOPE 2 was fourth most popular in 2021, with over 400 views.

The internal DPG Climate Festival was hosted by two younger employees, featured two weeks’ of presentations and panels from 22 global specialists, and due to time zones, often recorded and hosted in the early hours of the morning. Almost 500 staff participated live with the events, and many more had access to recordings. The DPG is instrumental to developing younger employees during their careers at Stantec, including internal and external training, workshops and mentorship.

The winners will be announced at the annual awards dinner which will be held on 22 June 2022, in London. More information on the CIEEM Awards 2022 can be found here.
