Continuous dialogue with stakeholders
Dialogue between Raisio and its stakeholders is an important part of the company’s operations. The key themes of Raisio’s responsibility work, i.e. Materiality Assessment, are revised annually on the basis of stakeholder dialogues. Continuous open interaction is a vital part of the management of Raisio’s corporate responsibility.
At the end of 2017, Raisio carried out an extensive stakeholder analysis involving 1,400 consumers, customers, employees and investors from the company’s key markets. Based on the results of the analysis, we drew up key themes for our responsibility programme for 2019 - 2023.
