Extractive Sector CSR

With over 30 years of experience facilitating linkages between all levels of government, communities, and other stakeholders, CowaterSogema has demonstrated capacity to develop and align sound, locally relevant strategies and initiatives. Our unique ability to align stakeholder priorities and promote constructive, participatory dialogue allows us to maximize corporate social responsibility (CSR) investment impact, reinforcing our partners’ social license to operate.

CowaterSogema’s approach draws from its deep knowledge of development best practices to achieve long-term development results. As part of this, CowaterSogema seeks to facilitate strategic platforms for collaboration to enable the creation, scale-up or replication of successful Corporate Social Investments (CSI). To do so, we prioritize the identification and sourcing of additional funding resources in order to maximize the impact of private sector investments in beneficiary communities.
