For a number of years, social licence to operate has been identified as a significant risk for the mining and metals industry, as a result of the evolving stakeholder landscape and increasing stakeholder capacities and influence. Understanding this current and future dynamic environment is crucial to making informed decisions, avoiding costly disruption to mineral extraction, and maximising the benefits of mining for all.

Our research examines the dynamic social licence to operate (SLO) stakeholder landscape within which the mining industry operates and within which diverse actors seek to shape mining activity.
