Engaging with our Stakeholders
Listening to our stakeholders is vital to maximizing our positive impact on the communities in which we operate. We analyse stakeholder inputs, company insights, sector initiatives, peer reviews, and global trends to set our business initiatives. By listening to what our stakeholders consider important, we are able to engage with their key interests proactively, manage risks and opportunities, and set a clear direction to deliver long-term shared value for our company and communities. To identify those issues that are most important for our company and our stakeholders, we periodically conduct Materiality Assessments, which help us to continually attune our efforts. Across the countries where we operate, we encourage and invest in developing strategic relations through open dialogue with our key stakeholders. To this end, we customize unique engagement activities to interact with each of our stakeholders, depending on our line of business in a given location, so as to share best practices, accelerate change, and seek to ensure we are contributing our utmost to a sustainable future. We are committed to conducting our business relations with honesty, respect, and integrity. Through our Code of Ethics and Business Conduct and stakeholder Engagement Policy, we define the framework we use when deploying our proactive stakeholder engagement strategy. Our stakeholders include our people, customers, shareholders, investors, communities, suppliers, NGOs, academia, governments, policymakers, and other businesses through trade associations.
