We support our clients to operate successfully in a multitude of challenging environments by helping them build stakeholder trust and social licence to operate. Managing risk is also often a process of managing perceptions. It is about listening to stakeholder concerns and adapting to the operating environment on a local, national and international level.
Any project or development that has an impact on local lives, political events and economic benefit must operate in a permissive environment. This requires communicating with the right groups in a way that is both accessible and sustainable and may include engagement with Government at national and local level, trades unions, communities, interest groups and other stakeholders. Physical security measures should support a social licence to operate in order to yield long term success.
We have great experience in identifying the critical issues and the stakeholders which, if addressed appropriately, will support the smooth running of projects.
