Stakeholder and CR Management

voestalpine has numerous stakeholders with different interests and concerns. An important task of the company’s management is thus to maintain relationships with them, to take up their concerns, and to reconcile divergent interests as best as possible. This orientation toward stakeholders has been the basis of voestalpine’s successful and sustained development in the past and will become ever more important in the future.

Management of communities bordering the new special steel plant

voestalpine is building a state-of-the-art special steel plant in Kapfenberg, Austria, for supplying the most demanding customer segments. To engage in a dialogue with the local stakeholders, a comprehensive community management plan was developed even before the groundbreaking ceremony in 2018. The aim is to tie the local population proactively into the project, encourage a dialogue, and create a positive environment at the new site through established processes.

The project has its own website and dedicated phone number, and regular office hours and information events are scheduled as well. Display cases and a webcam provide information about the status of the construction work. The affected communities are notified early on of potential problems (e.g., excess noise), and complaints if any are handled rapidly on an individual basis through on-site visits.
