resolution88 is a boutique consultancy specializing in ‘Social License’ solutions for the extractive industries.
resolution88 advocates that earning Social License is essentially a matter of cultural recognition and economic development. Companies want to operate in peoples’ backyards with irreversible changes to natural and social landscapes, some induced by industrial development, and some occurring anyway. In return, local people want economic opportunity whilst preserving their idiosyncratic cultural norms and local environmental integrity.
Local Level Agreements (LLAs) are key to securing mutual obligation, long-term commitment and certainty for communities. While consistency with IFC social performance standards is an essential prerequisite for securing regulatory and community consent and Equator Bank financing, embedded social performance capability secured by LLAs at asset level are the real key to securing Social License.
resolution88 offers social risk analysis, advice on social performance policies and procedures, LLAs, site-based training, board-level assurance reviews and more to secure Social License success.
