We operate in many different countries and ship to most countries in the world and have close relationships with customers, other multinational electronics companies and industry associations.

Our business brings us into contact with a very wide range of stakeholders and requires that we be sensitive to those interactions. We believe that dialogue leads to mutual understanding, and with it a mutual commitment to sustainable development. We made stakeholder dialogue a part of our management processes and our Sustainability Policy.

We address the interests of each group through various methods and make regular assessments of our effectiveness. We continue to strengthen our approach, creating an additional structure where needed and improving the overall quality of each interaction. Some examples of our stakeholder interactions are given here.
