We define stakeholders as a group or an organization that can affect or be affected by ASEH. Based on the 5 major principles (dependency, responsibility, influence, diverse perspective, tension) of the AA1000 SES-2011 Stakeholder Engagement Standard (SES), we have identified 7 major categories of stakeholders. They are categorized into two groups based on whether the impact is direct or indirect. Our direct stakeholders include shareholders, employees, customers, and suppliers/contractors; our indirect stakeholders include community residents (media), government, industry unions and associations.
We engage with our stakeholders through a variety of means, depending on the nature of the relationship. The methods of engagement will vary depending on the stakeholders, the issues of concern and the purpose of engagement. We regularly report the stakeholder communication status to the board of directors every year.
