Stakeholder engagement helps us improve our industry
Our corporate strategy includes interacting with our stakeholders so we can better understand their perspectives and priorities when it comes to our company and the industries and markets in which we operate. Stakeholder engagement is central to our aim of creating a transparent supply chain that reduces our collective environmental footprint and includes transparent communications and continuous assessments of our operations with and by our partners.
How we define our stakeholders
Our stakeholders include employees, customers, governments, NGOs, industry associations, universities, communities and media. We are in constant contact with all these stakeholders about industry developments, our activities and services and other important topics, such as our Materiality Matrix.
How we involve our stakeholders
We expect every Stahl location and business to engage with its stakeholders. These stakeholders are defined as people and organizations that may be affected by our actions, goals and policies, and which may impact us in the same way. We engage with them on an ongoing basis, and the following table provides a snapshot of the steps we take to form and maintain productive relationships with our key stakeholder groups.
|Distributors and agents|
|Investors and shareholders|
|Government (incl. public authorities)|
|NGOs and Civil Society|
|Industry associations and foundations|
How we engage with stakeholder feedback
We welcome critical questions, we assess our business activities on their corporate responsibility and sustainability and we communicate transparently, all with a view to increasing the general acceptance of our business activities. These kinds of dialogs help us decide what we should do to keep people informed, establish trust and form partnerships. So what would you like to discuss?
