Social Responsibility

Social Responsibility

Mining companies face many social and environmental responsibility challenges across the mining life cycle. We help them obtain their ‘social licence to operate’ - taking a balanced approach to identifying, mitigating and managing the impacts of their projects. This includes establishing positive relationships, informed consultation and participation with stakeholders right from the onset of a project – then on through the ESIA process, operation and eventual closure.

We work at a corporate and site level, helping clients apply the updated International Finance Corporation Performance Standards and European Bank for Reconstruction and Development Performance Requirements that emphasise the need to consider social and community impacts - including how developments affect land users and ecosystems services. We can help you build capacity within your existing social team, and address challenges by minimising adverse impacts and maximising socio-economic benefits.
 
We undertake integrated ESIAs and due diligence reports that consider human rights issues - helping you comply with good industry practice with benefits for stakeholders and shareholders alike. Our services and specialised advice on complex social issues include developing social and community management plans including stakeholder engagement, community development, resettlement, livelihoods restoration, impact benefit agreements and social mine closure planning - especially valuable when working alongside small scale and artisanal miners, or operating close to indigenous communities.
