MYTILINEOS HOLDINGS - SUSTAINABILITY REPORT 2013 - page 14

Overview & key issues raised during the
Dialogue Forums with our key Stakeholder
groups in 2013.
In terms of attendance, response levels
were fairly satisfactory, as more than 100
people from 7 different Stakeholder
groups of our subsidiaries attended the
individual consultation events.
Our overall Social Footprint was pre-
sented for the first time, with Trans-
parency and Human Rights protection
also included, partly, in the dialogue
agenda.
The annual results of the “MELLON” pro-
gramme designed to boost the sustain-
ability of ALUMINIUM S.A. were pre-
sented, thus communicating this difficult
effort, as well as the prospects opened
up through the programme’s successful
implementation, to the Stakeholder
groups.
Developments regarding the issue of
the arbitration between ALUMINIUM
S.A. and the PPC S.A. were discussed at
length, with company and Group repre-
sentatives covering fully all points raised
from the floor.
A particularly positive element in the
Dialogue Forum organised by METKA
S.A. was the live link via Skype with the
company's construction site in Jordan and
the presentation of the Health & Safety
measures applied by the company’s Site
Manager, which served as confirmation
of the data presented by the company.
A presentation was given of the proce-
dures involved in the initiative taken by
METKA S.A. to develop a Greenhouse Gas
(GHG) Report in accordance with the ISO
14064 International Standard, in order
to identify and limit the relevant CO
2
emissions from the company’s activities
and thus to further reduce its environ-
mental footprint.
In detail, the key issues raised by each
Stakeholder group in the engagement pro-
cedure held in 2013, where the following:
T
he collaboration with our Stakeholders,
which takes place mainly through our an-
nual consultation events (Dialogue Forums),
is a formally established procedure that
serves a twofold purpose: it strengthens the
Group’s application of the precautionary
principle, primarily in connection with envi-
ronmental and social issues but also in con-
nection with CSR governance issues at the lev-
el of our subsidiaries, thus ensuring that the
conditions to support their sustainable de-
velopment are in place; and it allows us to
achieve a better understanding of upcoming
issues and to develop action plans or take ad
hoc focused initiatives in order to respond in
the best possible way to our Stakeholders’ ex-
pectations.
To ensure the effectiveness and transparen-
cy of this consultation mechanism, the CSR
teams of our subsidiaries have been tasked
with assessing all expectations, proposals, re-
quirements and potential complaints of our
Stakeholders, as these are gathered through
the Dialogue Forums and the other forms of
communication listed in the table below.
Based on this assessment, the responsible CSR
teams propose and ensure the adoption of
measures intended to fulfill expectations and
resolve any problems in our relations with lo-
cal communities. In addition, taking into ac-
count the comments and proposals of our
Stakeholders, they make a valuable input to
the process of identifying the Group’s key
CSR priorities and corresponding objec-
tives.
