With growing interest in corporate social responsibility at both a legal and public level, managing social as well as environmental impacts of major projects and ongoing operations is no longer a discretionary activity, but an absolute necessity.
Companies' activities often impact the communities around them. Members of these communities can – and very often do – have the ability to influence our clients’ activities and project outcomes.
Failure to effectively manage social performance and engagement can result in major projects and business activities being delayed or derailed, and can lead to serious reputational and financial consequences.
ERM helps clients adapt to this business reality by building productive relationships with stakeholders and by effectively managing social impacts, risks, and opportunities. This can include:
- Engagement and Conflict Resolution
- Baseline Studies
- Impact and Risk Assessment
- Management Plans
- Social Monitoring and Evaluation
