This guide offers a three-point framework for companies seeking to integrate FPIC principles into their policies and apply them in the operations. This includes

• complying with the requirements for FPIC under international and national law,

• implementing FPIC principles throughout the project life-cycle, and

• extending FPIC processes to all project-affected communities in line with good practice guidance. It also seeks to

• articulate the relevance of FPIC to company policy and practice, and

• provides insights into what it means to respect individual and collective rights, and for people to have a meaningful voice in deliberative decision-making processes about their own development.
