Vopak aims for transparency and an open dialogue with its various stakeholders.
Transparency is key to creating trust. An open dialogue provides us with valuable insights into our business and operating environments and helps us to be a responsive and responsible member of the communities in which we operate.
The table below summarizes the expectations and interests of our stakeholders and topics they deem material for society, the environment and our business. It reflects the outcome per stakeholder group from our most recent engagements. Expectations, interests and key topics vary for each stakeholder. Vopak’s commitments, policies, and actions in response to the key topics and stakeholders’ concerns are included in the Sustainability chapter of our annual report.
Recognizing the significance of stakeholder engagement, we prioritize proactive dialogue, maintaining regular contacts, and fostering open two-way communication. Our Stakeholder Engagement Policy aims to ensure consistent engagement with local stakeholders across the company as well as to align with regulatory developments like CSRD. The policy clarifies expectations and specifies who is responsible for oversight of stakeholder engagement as well as lobbying.
