Copper has announced its plans to become part of the RSK family. The opportunity to retain Copper’s brand, team and specialism while working alongside a global leader in environmental sustainable solutions is exciting for all involved. 

Martin McCrink and Ben Heatley set out five reasons this is an exciting time to be part of Copper. 

Copper’s individuality, specialism and focus is strengthened  

Copper prides itself on addressing client challenges in creative, cost effective and innovative ways. Copper’s approach with clients matters to us. The ways we work with clients will continue and we have the opportunity to further our specialisms, deepened with the support of 10,000 experts from around the world. 

Working at the forefront of global challenges 

Our net zero targets remains a long term, strategic challenge for everyone in the UK, while around the world, organisations are planning to transition to a low carbon future. On our own, we can help our clients, but working with RSK enables us to offer more wholistic solutions to the biggest challenges with access to the strength in depth of RSK’s global business.  

A team of over 150 communications specialists 

Copper’s team has grown to more than 70 consultants. We’ll be working closely with RSK Creative – a technical writing, design and creative services business. Combine this with RSK’s corporate communications team and this means together we have over 150 communications experts who can  deliver even more innovative solutions for our collective clients. 

Attracting talent  

The talent market is complex and brimming with opportunity. The weight of a global business behind us offering a range of careers, means we can provide even more rewarding career development and thereby continue to attract the brightest and most committed communications specialists.  

A responsible, sustainable, knowledgeable shareholder 

As a small business, reducing our carbon emissions and maximising our social value impact can be a challenge. But now, with the backing of a global business that specialises on the fight against climate change RSK and Copper will be working together to reduce our impact on the planet and to increase our value to society. That will happen by assessing our own operations, but also by supporting the largest and most impactful energy transition projects in the UK and around the world.
