Listening to and partnering with our stakeholders is an important enabler of change. It helps us understand external developments, challenges and market expectations and identify potential opportunities and principal risks for our business. It also increases transparency and enables us to build strong, trusting relationships.
Our key stakeholders include employees, customers, communities, investors, suppliers and contractors; as well as partners, governments and regulators. For a full list of our stakeholders and how we engage with them, please see page 102 of our online Sustainable Development report 2019.
Multi-stakeholder partnerships and global engagements are key to how we address global challenges. Given the scale and nature of the challenges we face, it’s only by working together that we will achieve the impact, innovation and scale necessary to bring about change. We work closely with others to build a common understanding of sustainability issues (both challenges and the opportunities) and to maximise the shared value we create.
