Social Licence Policy Development Forum
According to recent surveys of extractive sector leaders, the number one risk currently facing our industry is Social ‘Licence to Operate’ (SLTO).
Although it remains elusive and poorly understood, SLTO is arguably the greatest existential issue of the 21st century for the Australasian mining industry and the AusIMM wants to help industry professionals meet the challenge.
To do this a Forum of 90 invited and self-selected AusIMM members representing a cross section of Branches, Societies and Grades will be convened to discuss and develop SLTO policy recommendations for the Institute’s ‘Trusted Voice’ initiative. The work and recommendations will align to AusIMM’s vison, mission, values and charter, and deliver value for the AusIMM and its members.
Members are encouraged to register early as participant numbers will be strictly limited. Participants do not have to have any detailed knowledge of environmental and social performance or Social Licence generally, as summary reading material and a recommended reading list will be sent to the selected delegates, prior to the Forum.
This is a unique opportunity to contribute to the next generation of AusIMM policy and professional
development and learn about SLTO from a diverse range of experts, colleagues and peers. Delegates will
become part of a valuable network of colleagues available to mutually assist with SLTO issues and planning

The Forum will begin with short presentations by invited speakers to make clear the purpose and anticipated outcome of the day’s activities. Attendees will then be split into concurrent breakout groups, with a balance of age, gender, background and experience, with each group exploring and debating various topics of SLTO while ensuring concise recommendations are brought back to the plenary for further discussion. The outcome will be a concise discussion paper with policy recommendations to go to the AusIMM Board.
