Stakeholder engagement

GRI 102-21, 102-40, 102-42, 102-43, 102-44

The Group fully understands the significance of all stakeholder engagement and therefore makes considerable efforts to address all related concerns and expectations thoroughly. This approach helps to build strong, long-lasting relationships. The most important criteria for consideration are the inclusion of all stakeholders, open communication and encouraged feedback. There are various channels of communication, which are constantly being improved. However, having open communication and information transparency as the foundation of the relationship with all stakeholders, the Group strives to provide a unified source of information, which will eventually optimise communications, by developing the Group’s communications strategy.
