IBIS recognises the complexities of instilling a sustainable ‘social licence’ as our clients invest and operate in emerging markets: earning the trust and acceptance of stakeholders, partnering with communities and understanding the nuances of each environment.

The key is creating a collaborative, robust and transparent social management system that proactively documents stakeholder engagement, manages grievances and commits to community upliftment.

Our assessment of the social and stakeholder risks and opportunities of investment strategies, assets or sites, assists clients in their integration of social performance management on a fund, organisation or portfolio level.

We then recommend scalable measures to minimise risk, invest in sustainable value and engage stakeholders by way of appropriate benefits and participation design.
