Examining issues of 'social licence to operate' facing the minerals sector 2006
The resources sector requires ongoing community acceptance if it is to continue to contribute to the wellbeing of Australia. In Victoria, the government is committed to assessing how resource projects operate in harmony with local communities, and the situations which give rise to significant conflict. Futureye was commissioned to assess these issues through a study of social licence to operate in the minerals sector.
The project has provided the CSIRO and DPI with a deeper understanding of the current and future environments facing the minerals sector in Australia. The outcome was a series of recommendations around a strategic framework and a three-year action plan to position the DPI to operate effectively at the interface between the resource industry and communities.
