Stakeholder engagement

At Power Corporation, we believe that our stakeholders are a key component of our success and recognize the importance of taking into account various stakeholder perspectives to inform our decisions and actions, where relevant. This is why we constantly strive to foster relationships and promote mutual understanding and trust with them. In fact, maintaining an ongoing dialogue with our stakeholders is an integral part of our responsible management approach.

Engagement process

We engage with a broad range of internal and external stakeholders.

Through stakeholder engagement, we aim to learn about our stakeholders’ views and needs, better understand their concerns and expectations of us, and gain insights about what matters most to them. This allows us to deepen our understanding of key topics and issues, address items of mutual interest and make better and more informed decisions regarding sustainability matters. We will continue to engage with stakeholders to inform our continuous improvement efforts as well as the content of our reporting.
