Mitigating Your Company’s Social Risk

We help companies identify and navigate broad and project-specific social risk.

Adamantine defines social risk as the combined political, policy, and community factors that could delay, increase the costs of, or stop your project. Our team’s deep experience working across a broad range of stakeholders — including investors, environmental groups, regulators, activists, local governments, residents, and community leaders — allows us to help our clients chart a path forward in increasingly challenging times for any land use development.

Services

Strategy Session
Get your leaders on the same future-proofing page

Challenge

Oil and gas companies feel increasing external pressure to articulate their role in a decarbonizing energy future, yet it’s challenging to know where to start. Among those challenges: Making sense of the many fronts of opposition and getting your leadership on the same page about what is required to seize opportunities, mitigate risk, and strategically move forward.

Our Approach

Adamantine uses short (2-hour or 4-hour) strategy sessions to guide new clients who want to explore their strategic options on ESG, the energy future, and decarbonization. The sessions identify company-specific risk factors, influential stakeholders, external pressures, and leadership opportunities that can give your company a competitive advantage. We encourage participation in these meetings from your firm’s leadership and key personnel from operations and investor relations to ensure buy-in, accurately assess all your risks, and develop the most realistic strategies. 

Outcomes

Adamantine’s strategy sessions provide your company’s leaders with:

  • a shared understanding of the risks and opportunities external trends pose for your operations;
  • a prioritized sorting of these risks and opportunities; and
  • a menu of proactive, future-proofing options for strategic next steps.

In longer sessions, leaders work through a potential timeline for action, crafting objectives to lay the groundwork for a future ESG, energy future, or decarbonization strategy.
