What does “a social license to operate” mean.
Basically, it means an Informal acceptance granted to an individual or organisation by a community. The reality is most businesses are a long way from understanding their social license to operate.
For instance, the banks never grasped the need to earn a social license to operate. Now they are lumbered with a bank levy and a Royal Commission into their operations which thus far have been damning in terms of policies and procedures.
The social license to operate is in fact a risk management issue.
Community expectations are higher than ever because of social media and the swift transmission of information that can be damaging to the reputation of a company and therefore a lack of trust from the community.
