Element uses its social impact assessment and engagement expertise to minimise social impacts and create positive community and stakeholder relationships. We adopt a rigorous approach when working on projects by creating a social licence to operate from project inception to approvals, construction and operation. Our SIA and engagement team efficiently reduces social impacts that can threaten the viability of complex projects, and ultimately the reputation of our clients.

Engagement and Social Sustainability

Our engagement and social sustainability work is a significant part of our service offering, identifying problems and opportunities early on so that big problems aren’t overlooked. We craft mitigating strategies at the onset to avoid headaches later down the process. 

We build trust with you through a highly collaborative approach that helps significantly enhance community support for your project (now and in the future) with open and honest communication at the core. 

We engage the community with you, alleviating concerns and creating understanding of the benefits of the project, as well as addressing the issues. Element bring the community on a journey with you. 

It’s our job to identify and listen to the impact your project has on the community and sustainability of an area, and support all parties through effective communication and trust building to minimise legal risk, community upset, environmental detriment and ongoing timeframes.
