Our Sustainability Approach

Stakeholder Engagement

Building an effective and strong stakeholder dialogue is at the foundation of keeping our business sustainable and engaging them into our sustainability strategy.

 

Since 2013, we have been prioritizing our stakeholders and the means of communication through a comprehensive stakeholder mapping study pursuant to AccountAbility’s AA1000 SES Standard and the EFQM Business Excellence Model.

 

We engage with each stakeholder group on a regular basis not only to share our sustainability efforts but also to evaluate both our material issues and to consolidate their opinions and feedbacks. The various means of communication with different stakeholder groups and how we respond to their questions and concerns are provided on the following table.
