Meaningful community engagement that goes beyond transactional interactions or conventional corporate philanthropy can greatly enhance a company’s ability to establish, maintain or restore social license to operate (SLO). Obtaining SLO involves building trust with community members and leaders through environmental and socially responsible actions that are informed by local needs, and then communicated to community members. Once established, SLO needs to be maintained through ongoing community outreach, and engagement strategies should be kept current with an attention to new data, policy changes, and shifts in community opinions and needs. As the current biodiversity and climate crises become more dire, and more opportunities for the private sector to address these issues arise, expectations for companies to act quickly, transparently and in conjunction with scientific consensus will continue to grow.
