Millions of people around the world have an influence on or interest in our business. We believe that active and constructive dialogue with our stakeholders improves how we formulate and implement our business strategy, helps us set priorities and helps us understand the needs of the societies in which we operate. To Roche, stakeholder engagement is a two-way dialogue where both parties can learn from the experience and knowledge of the other.
We keep our stakeholders up-to-date on our actions and opinions through a variety of channels, including our annual report, corporate and local websites, responding to emails, and a host of other publications and events. Our position statements explain our view and strategy on specific issues, while addressing stakeholder concerns, requests and expectations in a clear and transparent way.
Our Corporate Principles outline the transparency we expect of staff when dealing with stakeholders.
Stakeholder feedback is integral to helping the Corporate Sustainability Committee to identify and assess our social, environmental and ethical risks and opportunities. We recognise the need to work in partnership with our stakeholders, regularly seeking their views and taking them into account. See our Corporate Principles for more information.
