The Challenges

Social sustainability is a complex challenge faced by many high-risk industries including but not limited to mining, oil and gas, utilities, and solid waste management.

These operations typically require a large geographic footprint, inevitably disrupting habitats and raising concerns from the surrounding communities. Opposition groups and civilians with ties to the land can all present significant threats to a company’s operations.

To support local communities, companies typically agree to commitments and social initiatives, referred to as Local Content or Socio-Economic Development. In countries like Canada, companies will sign Impacts and Benefits Agreements (IBAs) outlining the anticipated effects that the industrial project will have on the land and promising socioeconomic benefits in return.

Failing to uphold the terms of these agreements can pose substantial consequences to a company’s operations, including stoppages in production and hefty fines. However, the sheer number of stakeholders to manage, in addition to managing proposed socioeconomic development initiatives on time and within budget, requires a well-thought out and efficient approach that traditional spreadsheets and point solutions are not equipped to handle.
