Social impact assessment

Resettled town near Hambach opencast mine

Mining operations often have an impact on the surrounding population. Having resettled 35,000 people in 50 years RWE has experience of consultation and involvement with the local community to minimise such impact.

The benefits of our services in social impact assessment include:

  • resettlement programmes
  • social impact assessment studies
  • social welfare programmes
  • alternative job research programmes and social welfare programmes
  • planning and coordination of public hearings
