Schréder - Sustainability Report 2022

Stakeholders’ engagement Schréder is part of an ecosystem. We interact daily with many stakeholders who influence and are influenced by our operations at various levels. Engaging with them is therefore essential to ensure that our strategy is aligned with their needs and interests. The following table summarises our process. Based on the Group’s activities, the following stakeholder groups have been identified: Customers Employees Shareholders Board of Directors Suppliers and business partners Policymakers Local communities At Schréder, each department is responsible for identifying and engaging with its own stakeholders. The formats and scope of dialogue are adapted to the needs and wishes of each stakeholder group and take place on an ongoing basis throughout the year (not specifically as part of the preparation of the Sustainability Report). We are constantly working to improve our engagement process.
