Sustainability

Engaging with our stakeholders to create shared value

Understanding the views and expectations of our different stakeholders is crucial to our continued success. Through active, open dialogue, we strive to identify not just stakeholder concerns but also global trends and market expectations with the greatest impact on our future operations and value creation. Stakeholder engagement is also strengthened through closer cooperation across the value chain.
