Stakeholder engagement is essential to grow our business. To succeed in our purpose of making sustainable living commonplace, we need to engage and work in partnership with a wide range of stakeholders. These include investors, customers, communities, suppliers, governments and regulators, bankers, insurers and other businesses through Qatar Steel.
Our materiality assessment helps us to understand which issues are important to the business and our stakeholders, and therefore where and how to focus our engagement. By defining the needs and interests of our stakeholders, we can also evolve our strategy to better meet their expectations and focus our reporting on the issues that they care about.
We seek to understand the issues of concern and to respond openly and transparently to any questions raised about our products and the way we run our business.
