Research and Consultancy
We provide technical Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) consultancy to the finance, mining and energy sectors. This ranges from carrying out ESG risk reviews and due diligence on existing and planned projects to the research and development of innovative tools and approaches to support achieving and maintenance of social licence to operate, through good social performance. We contribute to and present published papers about our research, work and approaches at leading conferences globally.
As social licence continues to dominate the business risk indices, an understanding of the basic principles of social licence to operate is essential for mineral exploration and the mining companies.
Social licence to operate can be regarded as the outcome of good social performance resulting from three interrelated aspects: understanding the ESG context, effective engagement, and maximising shared value opportunities.
Sazani develops and delivers bespoke training in a face to face or online setting in navigating social performance and social licence to operate for early-stage career geoscientists, post-graduates, mineral exploration and mining companies.
Understanding what is known and not known is equally important as knowing when to bring in the specialists. Contact us for more details
