What Our Clients Say
Consider (selected) clients’ reports about their experience of working with PGS Consults to achieve key objectives in varied sectors.
“Seeking an outside perspective to guide our first effort in engaging our stakeholders directly with sustainability, we selected PGS Consults to conduct a stakeholder materiality assessment. This was a challenging project based on the large size of our company and the wide variety of stakeholders involved—the PGS team worked in close collaboration with us to tailor the engagement process specifically to our stakeholders’ differing preferences and levels of understanding of sustainability. Through a workshop with our Sustainability Council and a presentation to our Executive Team, PGS Consults helped us engage our leaders more effectively with the importance of sustainability. Equipped with the results of this assessment, as well as recommendations from Presidio’s thought leaders, Granite has a more solid foundation upon which to further develop its sustainability program.”
—Raven Adams, Sustainability Specialist, Granite Construction

Working with PGS has paved the way for my goal-setting and objectives for the year ahead. We could not be more happy working with PGS and looking forward to many more projects with them in the future.”
