When preparing the first Corporate Responsibility Report in 2013 the relevant stakeholder groups were defined and arranged in four groups. The voestalpine Corporate Responsibility Steering Committee regularly examines this list to ensure it remains complete and up to date. This committee is chaired by the CEO and includes the heads of the Group units Compliance, Legal, Environment, Research, Communication, Human Resources, health & safety, Investor Relations, Procurement, Raw Materials Procurement, and International Business Relations. It meets as required to discuss current issues. The CR executives and the management are also engaged in intensive bilateral communication on the subject of topics relevant to corporate responsibility.
