Our stakeholders are our people, customers, shareholders, investors, communities, suppliers, NGOs, academic institutions, government authorities, legislators, and other companies through industry associations.
Listening to all of them is vital to maximize our positive impact in all the communities and countries where we operate. Together we address concerns, manage risks and opportunities, and establish guidelines to maintain long-term shared value.
To achieve this, we conduct regular materiality studies that allow us to adapt our efforts, share best practices, accelerate change, ensure our contribution to a sustainable future and deploy a more proactive strategy. In addition, our business relationships are honest, respectful and upright, and remain aligned with our Code of Ethics and Business Conduct and Stakeholder Engagement Policy.
