9. Stakeholder Engagement

The company discloses how the socially and economically relevant stakeholders are identified and integrated into the sustainability process. It states whether and how an ongoing dialogue takes place with them and how the results are integrated into the sustainability process.

Deutsche Hypo understands stakeholders to be all persons and organisations who are directly or indirectly influenced by the Bank’s business activities or who can influence the success of its business. Based on a materiality analysis, a stakeholder analysis is also regularly prepared by Sustainability Management at Deutsche Hypo. All stakeholders are assessed based on their importance, their expectations and the forms of stakeholder dialogue. The ongoing expansion of stakeholder communications from 2017 onwards is currently planned.
