Community and Stakeholder Engagement
At Umwelt we know that open but carefully tailored communication and community involvement leads to improved project outcomes including better scoping of social and environmental risks, more constructive community relationships, smoother approval processes and informed, engaged communities.
Our people bring skills and experience from a wide range of backgrounds including major corporations, all levels of government and community organisations.
We have worked with clients from diverse industry sectors including mining and extractive industries, land use planning and natural resource management and have facilitated stakeholder engagement at project and regional scales. We have extensive experience in culturally appropriate engagement programs.
Our strength lies in our ability to work within integrated teams on complex multidisciplinary projects, or to provide specialist stand-alone services.
We deliver high-quality cost-effective consultation and social impact programs that are meaningful, manage risk and are valued by communities and clients.
