Engaging with our stakeholders
We believe we can be successful only if we conduct dialogue with stakeholders, listen to their concerns and work collaboratively.
The stakeholders are people we have the most influence on or who have the most influence on our company. They include suppliers, customers, NGOs, the government, consumers and local communities. We maintain contact with these groups in a number of ways, including meetings, opinion polls, our website, mail or infoline.
