Security of business, projects and staff is a major concern for companies in the extractive sector. Security risks can lead to environmental damage, human rights abuses, compromises to staff and community safety, as well as reputational damage. Further, the legal and social expectations placed on corporations have increased in recent years.
How can resource companies address and mitigate security risks?
Fasken Martineau’s Corporate Social Responsibility Law group invites you to attend a complimentary seminar which will explore the security risks faced by extractive companies globally. The panelists will discuss considerations in conducting security risk assessments to respond to these risks and protect corporate projects, staff and local communities.
