Target Rock Advisors, founded in 2011, bridges the gap between the growing importance of sustainable business practices in the energy and utility industry and the relative lack of informed, industry-specific benchmarking and analytics. They provide deep utility sector sustainability benchmarks and market indexes to guide investors in making more informed decisions within the energy and utility industries.



Target Rock lacked a clear message. They needed to crystallize and disseminate their messages to the financial and utility industries to positively address the growing importance of socially responsible investing. The firm sought to offer guidance for investment managers in regard to best practices, sustainability leaders and industry demand. Target Rock realized they would need guidance of their own to ensure their message was heard clearly by the right audience.



Our team conducted a media training and messaging workshop with Target Rock spokespeople. In this workshop, we helped them refine their message to ensure all members of their team could clearly and consistently articulate it. Through simulated interviews, we also prepared them for media interaction. Using these newly distilled messages, SunStar engaged in an ongoing, proactive public relations campaign to connect Target Rock with the financial and energy press. SunStar also created a new suite of marketing materials, including fact sheets, topical articles and a white paper. Our team also contributed to the development of a website and provided ghostwriting services across various collateral materials.
