About stakeholder engagement
Collaborating and communicating regularly with affected stakeholders, implementing a clear stakeholder engagement plan and collecting feedback openly, are important steps for maintaining our social license to operate.
Communicating publicly and directly with stakeholders on business practices and sustainability reporting can build trust and enhance stakeholder performance in environmental, social, and governance. For this reason, Guiding Principle 6 challenges us to proactively engage key stakeholders in an open and transparent manner, and to build capacity with our stakeholders where capacity gaps may be identified, to foster meaningful engagement.
