A social licence to operate (SLO) is now acknowledged as necessary by enlightened companies wherever they work. However, little dedicated expertise is yet applied to the task of managing social risk – the social, economic, political and cultural dimensions of risk. Often, this results in SLOs built on fragile foundations and susceptible to erosion or collapse. Faced with such risks to their operations, companies might find no alternative to ad hoc reactive management of successive unforeseen crises.
Minerva SRM bridges this expertise gap and creates active management options. Our services ensure clients successfully integrate the network of stakeholders’ interests into their ventures, and thus optimise both commercial results and local community benefits. We enable clients to focus on core business operations confident of sustainable local community support.
