Key stakeholders that influence our business activities are highly diverse. We value stakeholder engagement because we believe communicating with our stakeholders is important for understanding social issues, building relationships of trust and collaboration, and accomplishing greater results. One of our key strengths defined as approaches to the material issues is "Promoting the development of advanced human skills by fostering partnerships with stakeholders representative of broad sectors of civil society."
Objectives of Stakeholder Engagement
We engage with stakeholders with two main objectives: The first is to incorporate stakeholders’ ideas and opinions into Group decision-making so that we can innovatively improve the quality of our initiatives. The second is to actively pursue deeper levels of understanding and collaboration with our stakeholders so that based on shared values we can take action toward a better society.
Continued engagement informs and influences the identification of our material issues and setting of our KPIs. Through such engagement, we work to deliver products and services that help address social issues while revising and improving our initiatives.
