Maintaining continuous dialogue with stakeholders is critical to long-term success.

We engage stakeholders to inform the development of our sustainability strategy and determine which topics are covered in our Sustainability Report. We see it as essential to have a good understanding of the issues that matter to our stakeholders and why they are relevant. Through this continuous dialogue we gain insights that enable us to align our sustainability initiatives to stakeholder requirements and ensure they deliver value to society.
