The most important thing we build is trust


Managing our business relationships

We define our stakeholders as the people and groups who influence or have an interest in our business.


Engaging with our stakeholders helps us identify the issues most important to them and develop mutually beneficial relationships. Understanding their issues informs our materiality process, the challenges we focus on  and our overall CR&S strategy. We share our approach and progress with our key stakeholders and seek their opinions and feedback to inform the continued development of our strategy.


We have summarised the stakeholder groups we engage with and their relevant issues below. Click on these links for further information on our strategy and the material issues and challenges we focus on.
