Climate Credibility

10 years ago businesses had no little idea how the cloud would change the way we do business.

Climate credibility is where cloud was 10 years ago. In 10 years’ time just about every single business will have a climate project as part of their social licence, a value add to their customers.

Anyone running a company would be aware that there are many formal legal and regulatory licenses required to operate a legitimate business. Social license is another thing again: the informal “license” granted to a company by various stakeholders who may be affected by the company’s activities.

To give a simple example: a mining company may be properly registered with all appropriate agencies; it may have a mining license, it may be listed with ASIC and be paying its taxes. It may meet every single obligation under the Fair Work Act. But if the mine is using up precious natural resources without taking due care of the environment or local residents, it will have failed to gain the trust and confidence of the community in which it operates.

Over time, the social license terminology has crossed into the mainstream and is now used to describe the corporate social responsibility of any business or organisation. And there’s a growing view that social responsibility can be good for long-time financial performance and shareholder value.

There’s a growing expectation that businesses – and business leaders – should take a more active role in leading positive change. There’s a belief that business should be working to eliminate harm and maximise benefits – not just for shareholders or customers, but for everyone.
