‘Social Impact Assessment (SIA) includes the processes of analysing, monitoring and managing the intended and unintended social consequences, both positive and negative, of planned interventions (policies, programs, plans, projects) and any social change processes invoked by those interventions. Its primary purpose is to bring about a more sustainable and equitable biophysical and human environment.’ International Principles for Social Impact Assessment


Ranking of extractive companies on indigenous rights in the Arctic

12 October 2017
, Other Countries
The ranking is intended as a contribution to Arctic governance and the upholding of indigenous rights, without the use of international treaties, laws, policing, or state intervention. Instead, the ranking aims to create competition among companies to be best on indigenous rights-by honoring and shaming companies, raising awareness, and encouraging companies to make explicit commitments to uphold indigenous rights. For the ranking to have this effect on the companies, it is important that people know about it and refer to it.

Then, a database of 200 conflict-affected infrastructure projects across six sectors was created to assess the nature and drivers of conflicts, the companies’ response to conflicts, and the material implications for projects, companies, and societies.
