Company and society: a comparative analysis of the framework for the equitable distribution of hydroelectric benefits

Project Details

Description

Currently, companies have been presenting a loss of legitimacy to the community where they operate, due to the persistent environmental and social problems related to their exercise. on the one hand, companies face environmental demands, scarcity of resources, high production costs, regulatory environments and greater attention of the population on the “social legitimacy” of their actions (méndez and gómez, 2017; suchman, 1995); while society experiences changes in its environment, displacement, environmental, economic impacts and in general transformations in its daily life. in this perspective, business actions generate consequences or impacts to which there is a greater demand of social groups (sarmiento, 2011; hernández and bonomie, 2010). in the specific case of hydropower companies, they need to constantly evaluate their management practices. in this sense, its sustainability is measured by international standards that together with complementary models (polanco and ramírez, 2017) have tried to give a closer approximation taking into account the characteristics of the business and the context in which it is developed, contributing to the performance and governance of the business

Objective
