Background Title

MREP Communications supports the concept that the development of environmental policy utilizes the principle of "we" as opposed to "us versus them".


A vocal minority who understands the political system too often develops policies that affect the majority. We have observed this development in the environmental resource, power generation, and agriculture, legal and financial sectors.


Jeffrey Lowes’ experience in the financial sector indicated that the policies of investing in green mutual funds tend to be based on the perceptions conveyed by the promoters and not on the fundamentals of the fund.  A number of people invest in certain funds because of environmental trends and disregard sound financial advice.


After observing a similar situation occurring in the horticultural sector, a niche was identified as being a business opportunity based on these fundamentals and MREP Communications was created.

MREP Communications networks with knowledgeable and professional international experts. These experts share a common concern that the environmental policies of tomorrow are often developed today through conjecture and hearsay.

 

Environmental fear mongering, government regulatory excess, and media irresponsibility are the three cornerstones of an industry collapse. The fourth can be the industry itself. Most industries think they are losing market share, but often the reality is they are losing market. Coordinating the different sectors of an industry from the suppliers to the end user is often cumbersome. Individuals with the skill set to organize the industry tend to exceed the budget parameters of an individual company. This is not beyond the grasp of a sector and the economies of scale can make any goal attainable. Collaborative efforts often yield the best results. One only needs to look at Wikipedia to understand how the structure can yield sound policy.


Gathering and understanding different perspectives creates different reference points. Cross-referencing information allows different perspectives to interact and through this interaction, common ground can be determined. Building on these points is crucial to developing acceptable policies that can create support for a project or industry.


How we build on the perspectives is the introduction of science to support or confirm the benefits of the project or industry. This common ground may then be strengthened by introducing supportive proven scientific information.
