I"m a professional environmental engineer and have worked all over the world for large mining, oil, gas and development companies. Im also an Adjunct professor at Arizona State University School of Sustainability. I know the ins and outs on a the natural resource industry and have worked extensively with ethical investors, the World Bank, IFC, and banking industry. I bring a different perspective to Seeking Alpha but one that cannot be ignored as natural resource developments will continue to be challenged to get approvals and permits and to keep stakeholders informed and satisfied. Companies who do not earn their social license to operate will struggle and face upsets in the years ahead.
