We engage with a wide variety of stakeholders who influence or are affected by our business activities, including employees, clients, shareholders, vendors and suppliers, communities and others such as industry associations, strategic partners and nonprofit organizations. It’s important that we listen to and seek feedback from our stakeholders as we make decisions about how we manage ESG risks and opportunities facing our business and clients. We are committed to continuous improvement in each of the areas where we make an impact so that we position our firm as an industry leader for a sustainable future. The table below outlines our key stakeholder groups and how we engage with them, as well as what’s important to each group and how we meet their expectations.






Our employees expect an inclusive and respectful working environment that prioritizes their safety and wellbeing, values their contributions, and provides equitable opportunities for growth and development.
