This book provides the framework, tools and case studies a company needs to create a foundation for truly sustainable community development.This 90-minute guide will enable you to: define the social licence to operate; make the business case for actively managing your social licence to operate; measure the social licence to operate; develop a step-by-step plan to restore, build, maintain and enhance your company’s social licence; and report on your social licence.This book is for managers in any company facing rising social scrutiny due to unwanted social or environmental impacts. You may be working in natural resources, renewable energy, oil and gas, forestry, construction, manufacturing, retail, food processing, pharmaceuticals or any industry that is facing rising stakeholder expectations and increasing criticism.
