Good Practice for Managing the Social Impacts of Oil Pipelines in the United States
Who’s behind it? – Foley Hoag (2017)
How can it help? – Banks providing project finance to the Dakota Access Pipeline Project retained Foley Hoag LLP to provide an independent report, using the pipeline as a case study, exploring best practice in community engagement with regard to the development of oil pipelines, with a particular focus on engagement with Indigenous Peoples. Foley Hoag’s final report provides recommendations for the project sponsors on steps they can take beyond U.S. legal requirements, as well as more general industry good practice guidance. The full report is confidential but a summary has been made available.
