We are an interdisciplinary, intercultural, international team that is effective in making sense of and working through social impact issues that are unstructured, cross-cutting and complex.
Respect for people is at the centre of how we approach these issues.
We consult, assess, train and coach organisations and their people so they can understand the context where they operate, build respectful relationships and contribute value while building internal capacity to promote sustainable practices. We work in the extractives, energy, infrastructure, transport, manufacturing, agri-food and financial sectors
We run training courses on topics such as social impact assessment, human rights, community health, social investment, indigenous peoples & FPIC, local content, & resettlement & livelihoods.
The training is delivered in a range of formats: e-learning, classroom, field trip & experiential. We partner with universities for some of our courses.
