Key Performance Indicator GRI SRS-102-44: Key topics and concerns
The reporting organization shall report the following information:

a. Key topics and concerns that have been raised through stakeholder engagement, including:
i. how the organization has responded to those key topics and concerns, including through its reporting;
ii. the stakeholder groups that raised each of the key topics and concerns.

As a company, we firmly believe in maintaining regular and close contact with all stakeholders. This dialog is part of our DNA and our way of working. Stakeholder feedback is continuously reviewed and, once the information has been checked internally, it is assimilated into our daily working practices.  

The most important topics as far as our customers are concerned are contract fulfillment, flexibility, and quality. Contract fulfillment and flexibility are also relevant for our suppliers. The topic of hop breeding plays a significant role for our growers. We discussed the topic of reporting in detail with our banks. Both sides see great advantages in open dialog. Material topics for employees are job security, efficient working processes, and flexible working hours.
