Engaging with society stakeholders
Understanding, balancing and responding to the varied and sometimes conflicting priorities of stakeholders is an important part of Vattenfall's responsibility. Engaging with our stakeholders in a constant dialogue helps us learn what they consider important, what is expected from us, to find suitable solutions, gain acceptance and make the best decisions possible.
As we have a broad impact, we have many different stakeholders. They include our customers, NGOs, local communities, business partners, suppliers, authorities, the owner (the Swedish State), employees and society at large.
We engage with our stakeholders in many different ways, including the Vattenfall Project Management Model (for projects), round tables, bilateral dialogues and the materiality analyses, through which we learn about stakeholders' priorities related to Vattenfall and our operations, and their expectations on us.
See our latest materiality analysis for more information on our stakeholders' priorities and expectations on Vattenfall.
