The successful creation of a series of multi-stakeholder-led pilot projects demonstrated the power of dialogue and joined strategies between a grass-roots community movement and senior company management. As a result, the multi-stakeholder forum approach to decision-making is now being implemented in more and more business units.
"Stakeholder engagement and community relations are of specific importance for our business's social license to operate. Through this programme with AstonECO, we gave our people the tools to develop successful projects, which support our business and which support also our stakeholders."
