Stakeholders

We endeavour to communicate and engage openly, effectively and inclusively with our stakeholders. Stakeholder concerns are addressed and have been considered in the determination of our material issues.

Our relationships with each stakeholder group directly impacts the sustainability of our business. The Group’s stakeholder engagement policy guides our approach and requires that we consider the views and concerns of our stakeholders in our strategic and operational decision-making. The themes and specific concerns for each stakeholder group are set out below, and have been identified through management’s engagement with stakeholders over the last year.
