SERVICES

Since 1993, The Fehlig Group consultants have been helping companies develop comprehensive corporate responsibility strategies. The Fehlig Group assists companies in the areas of strategic community involvement, environmental impact, workplace practices, and supply chain management. TFG consulting clients range in size from Fortune 500 companies to local small businesses and represent a broad range of industries.

The Fehlig Group approach combines deep knowledge of the corporate responsibility field with a commitment to understanding the unique situation of each business. While the field might be pushing for standardization and creating lists of “should’s,” TFG consultants emphasize customization to meet your distinct needs. The core of this approach is asking the question, “What are the most important relationships for your business? And how do you put your values into action to influence these relationships?”

Below you will find examples of service offerings, selected past and current clients, and sample project summaries.
