Social due diligence is critical for investors to identify, categorise, and avoid potential social risks associated with projects or investments. In frontier economies, social due diligence is more than just ticking off a checklist. It requires a deeper understanding of the socio-economic and cultural risks that can impact a project and its stakeholders. It also demands presentation of these complex issues in a manner that is easy to digest and critical in making timely investment decisions.
By providing analysis that goes beyond mere compliance, we help our clients identify and mitigate social risks endemic to investment in frontier economies.
SOCIAL DUE DILIGENCE SERVICES
Trubshaw Cumberlege uses a variety of tools and processes to identify, map, and asses social impacts and risks related to private equity investment. The purpose of our assessments are to identify, quantify, and rate key material risks and opportunities so that our clients can engage in effective social due diligence pre and post investment. This process serves as the foundation to design control measures to address these risks and to create shared value to key investment stakeholders.
HOW ARE WE DIFFERENT FROM OTHER SOCIAL DUE DILIGENCE PROVIDERS?
We dig deeper. While internationally recognised standards provide a good baseline to ensure minimum compliance, identifying and quantifying unique social risks and opportunities inherent to each particular investment requires a more comprehensive approach that goes beyond mere compliance. It also ensures that we are constantly seeking to maximise long-term value for our clients by avoiding social conflict and creating shared value for key project stakeholders.
WHERE DO WE OPERATE?
Trubshaw Cumberlege specialises in providing social due diligence services to clients looking to invest in emerging or frontier economies. In these environments, identifying and assessing social risks is a dynamic and complicated process that requires deep understanding of complex social and cultural environments. It also requires a more intricate understanding of how risks and impacts manifest themselves and how companies can leverage their resources to mitigate these risks and impacts.
