Redefining key components of social investment: Practitioner note 1

May 2017

This document is one of a series of practitioner notes on social investment published to complement IPIECA’s Creating successful, sustainable social investment: Guidance document for the oil and gas industry, originally published in 2008 and reissued in 2017.

Recent years have seen significant developments in social investment thought and approaches that trigger the need to explore what it means to practitioners in more depth. This practitioner note discusses the main evolutions in social investment since the launch of IPIECA’s guidance in 2008, shares observations from practitioners, and includes practical ways practitioners can analyse their situation and approach the issue.
