Here at Albany, we have a dedicated staff who each bring their own unique insights to the work we do. Albany has encouraged them to put their thoughts to paper to produce a regular series of Thought Pieces that will highlight critical issues and solutions in the communications world.

Albany has watched the events in Ukraine unfold with immense sadness. Today we are thinking, both as a company and as individuals, of our friends, colleagues, and partners affected by the unfolding events.
The future is uncertain, but we continue to commit ourselves to working on the defence of rule of law, freedom of speech and the foundations of an inclusive and prosperous society. To that end, we have begun publishing a series of Ukraine Updates to inform the wider public about the conflict and fact check the Kremlin’s disinformation.

In the run up to COP26 Albany is publishing a series of daily ‘Climate Local’ case studies. These will describe specific local climate initiatives within the broad categories as defined by the five Earth Shot goals i.e. Protect and Restore Nature, Clean our Air, Revive our Oceans, Build a Waste Free World and Fix our Climate; each of the case studies will highlight the role that communications play in their success.
