The nature of doing business has evolved over the years and the Social License to Operate is a cornerstone of community consultation and engagement in industrial activities. As an Indigenous company, ArcBuilt & Industrial adds significantly to Industry’s Social License to Operate.
ArcBuilt & Industrial Group of Companies Ltd. creates the ability for Indigenous people to participate meaningfully in industrial development initiatives. ArcBuilt’s business partnerships create the capacity and capability for Industry to engage Indigenous people directly. As procurement opportunities increase, so too does the ability to engage more Indigenous people. This is accomplished through training and employment and sub-contractor activities.
Ensuring that Industry’s conventional business needs are met serves as the foundation for growing capacity for Indigenous involvement on a productive and sustainable basis. The Social License to Operate becomes defined by the relationship between Indigenous people, their communities and the businesses in which they are engaged. Working closely with Industry sets out a long-term path for a collaborative and cooperative relationship that delivers mutual benefits along the way.
