With changing landscapes of liability, establishing benchmarks, measuring progress toward goals is challenging in both quantitative and qualitative terms. Our core approach is to bridge ‘best practices’ through a combination of regulatory standards, business practice and stakeholder perception.
Our best-practices approach is deeply immersed in community involvement and perception. For indigenous communities, our approach is based in the “free prior and informed consent” standard as reflected in international norms.
Our approach includes the following:
- Catalogue issues relevant to any criticisms or public perceptions
- • Involve stakeholders in the development and implementation of best–practices and operating metrics;
- Benchmark progress through timely reports and online mechanisms with response capabilities;
- Assist with decision making for next steps and ongoing, long–term strategies.
