Stakeholder engagement

To understand sustainability issues related to our industry and our company more clearly as well as improve our programmes, we proactively engage stakeholders and establish partnerships with a diverse set of experts and organisations.

Our key stakeholder groups include suppliers, customers, employees, franchises, governments, multilateral institutions, NGOs, industry organisations and investors. We do this as part of our daily operations and in formalised settings, for example meetings to prepare new targets or public-private partnerships to reach targets set.
