Title of the Talk
A globalized term that typically describes local relationship building between companies and communities, in Europe, the Social License to Operate (SLO) concept is both different and broader. It encompasses both societal and community SLO and emphasises governance. This will be shown via a new European Model of SLO that maps drivers and attitudes.
A globalized term that typically describes local relationship building between companies and communities, in Europe, the Social License to Operate (SLO) concept is both different and broader. The European SLO narrative involves not just appeasing local communities, but encompasses the debate around sustainability, security of raw materials supply and enhancing the role of government. In short, SLO is not only about trust at the local level, it is also about trust at the national level and the connection between the two. If one of the aims of SLO in Europe is to bridge mining-related barriers by developing trust with the broader society as well as with local communities, then it is crucial to understand the mechanism of SLO itself and how it operates across Europe’s mining regions. To that end, a European Model of SLO will be presented.
