RP2.1-09 Social licence to operate training package

Executive Summary

This project created a new education and training package directed at practitioners working across industry, government and academia. The package has two goals. The first is to build an understanding of the concept of Social License to Operate (SLO). Secondly, it outlines and develops the skills required to proactively manage SLO as it applies to future fuels.

The latest research on SLO was reviewed and synthesised. For example, the background and preparatory work for this training package included a detailed reviewed of the following aspects and topics:

  • The basic conceptual thrust of SLO;
  • The background and history of SLO;
  • The key factors that comprise an SLO;
  • The requisite steps for gaining SLO;
  • Stakeholder analysis and prioritisation activity; and
  • How participants may valuate and maintain SLO
