Strategic design

Curiosity

We’re innately curious and genuinely interested in initiative and enterprise. We want to know what makes your company special, how you compete, your growth strategy and other critical milestones and competitive advantages.

Our primary focus is helping our clients to optimize the impact of their financial and other related corporate communication.

We approach every project with the same objectives: distill the right information and transfer that information rapidly to create high recall, and for over 20 years, we’ve helped our clients create high-impact materials and stand out in the capital markets.

Understanding

We anchor every project with our proprietary ‘WWWPTR’ – the ‘What We Want People to Remember’ after you’ve left the room.

We design with a purpose – meeting your strategic objectives.

We start with questions – understanding your company and your goals.

When we are finished exploring, we get to work – making sure we have the right content, in the right flow.

Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Communication

Do investors properly value your sustainability efforts?

Does your investor narrative reflect your sustainability strategy?

How are investors measuring your ESG progress?

LodeRock is the most experienced capital markets communication firm in Canada. As Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) considerations continue to gain importance with investors, a company’s equity story, performance metrics and disclosure practices will need to better reflect its strategy and progress on ESG. This is advice LodeRock has been giving issuers for nearly two decades.

Now more than ever, issuers must include new narratives and performance metrics – ones that convey its ESG practices and reveal its most material ESG factors. Even if a company isn’t explicitly telling its ESG story, investors will still form an opinion. Companies are well served when they own their ESG narrative and view it as a core part of their equity story.

Our team will advise on strategies to enhance your governance and ESG disclosure practices and create an investor program that drives stakeholder engagement, ensuring that companies capitalize on the full value of their ESG efforts.

Our services include:

  • Interpret sector specific ESG landscape and peer analysis
  • Gain insight into stakeholder ESG perceptions and factors
  • Establish proprietary, material ESG factors and metrics
  • Develop strategic ESG messaging and corporate narrative
  • Create and manage corporate ESG disclosure strategy and material development
