Stratos develops infographic outlining key issues affecting public confidence in energy development to serve as a basis for multi-party dialogue.
Stratos works on a wide variety of energy development policies, regulation and industry practices in Canada where public and community confidence are important issues. Energy development in Canada finds itself in a difficult time, partly due to the following:
- Weak public confidence and a lack of community acceptance
- Indigenous rights, including protection of traditional land and ensuring fair benefits
- Canadian society’s understanding of the transition to a low-carbon economy
These factors create the need for innovative policy and regulation, improved industrial practices, and intuitive community development supported by effective dialogue and collaboration. Stratos works on a number of these aspects, including helping governments and industries understand these challenges. An example of this type of work is the Energy Development Cycle framework (see link below).
