Our most important stakeholder groups include our customers, employees, suppliers, partners, owners, and the general public in the communities where we are active, directly or indirectly, in the value chain. A close dialogue with relevant authorities, interest groups, schools and universities is also important in order to increase the value creation for our stakeholders.
We want to have a close dialogue and partnership with different interest groups to make the industry even better and more resource-efficient. The dialogue is the foundation of our sustainability efforts and the priorities we have regarding measures both to reduce our environmental impact and to contribute to better living conditions in all parts of the supply chain.
