Formats of involvement

GRI-Indicator G-4 27

The type and extent of our stakeholder involvement is based on the results of a case-related relevance analysis. The more relevant a stakeholder group is to the topic or project concerned, the more intensive stakeholder involvement will be. Depending on the intensity, we make a distinction between three types of involvement: information, dialog, and participation.
