ENB’s inaugural Social Licence Report delves into the current concerns, impacts and possible responses the upstream energy industry is confronting in relation to securing and maintaining a social licence to operate.
The findings are based on our industry-wide survey from late 2019 and provide insight into how ENB readers across a range of sub-sectors and employment levels view this important topic: what are the main drivers; where do the greatest challenges lie; how are companies dealing with these problems; and what do the pathways to improved performance look like?
Together, the rankings, findings and comments included in the report provide an excellent snapshot of how social licence issues have developed over recent times and where they are likely headed for the remainder of this remarkable year, and beyond. Anecdotal evidence suggests the COVID-19 pandemic has forced more intimate relationships between companies and their host communities and governments that are likely to persist once the crisis has abated.
