The challenges out there are not for the nearest available generalist, but for experts who can engage with HQ and project teams with minimum fuss and maximise the time to address above ground risks. AG-RS therefore combines ASIS International board certified CPP management oversight with the skills and local expertise of our highly regarded resident Country Partners.
AG-RS Managing and Country Partners understand the need for practical sustainable solutions, speak the language, and know the lay of the land. We have experienced the thorniest issues in person, be they violent blockades, facility occupation by militant groups, fired workers on hunger strike or volatile social protest groups attempting to burn down an exploration camp.
AG-RS personnel are qualified with ASIS International CPP, UK Defence Academy certifications and have undertaken industry specific courses such as ‘Applied Ethics’ & ‘Strategic Social Management’ from the University of British Columbia: Institute of Mining Engineering. We align our work to build in sustainability and CSR best practices, particularly Equator and Voluntary Principles, DPI DPF, IFC performance standards and ICMM Principle IV.
We have a proven track record, with over a decade of experience working throughout the Americas whilst also bringing insights from work further afield in countries as varied as Pakistan, Kurdistan, Bulgaria, Spain and Indonesia.
