NetPositive leads collaborative dialogue and problem-solving.


We work with affected communities, companies, governments, and other stakeholders to collectively change the approach to extractive development and increase the likelihood that communities will see sustained positive outcomes from resource development.


To do that, we help create a neutral space where communities, companies, government, and civil society groups can come together to talk about issues and agree on a path forward.


Our work is based on a core framework that outlines what our approach to extractive development should look like.
