The Social License Platform

Where responsible business meets local expertise

Finding and Facilitating Partnerships for Better Land-Based Investments

The Social License Platform (SLP) connects companies and investors with localized expertise to make smarter and more successful investments in land while promoting better outcomes for local communities. Businesses use the platform to find and hire service providers for a range of environmental and social services across diverse sectors, while service providers use the platform to identify and bid on new projects.

Registered businesses post project needs and review proposals submitted via the SLP before hiring the service provider with the right combination of skills and local knowledge for the job. This engagement helps businesses and investors operate efficiently and reduce risks, expands local service providers’ impact, and empowers communities to engage effectively with businesses.
