Stakeholder Engagement Management Approach

With a firm commitment to maintaining a balance in creating value, worth, and good relationships with all stakeholder groups, Charoen Pokphand group has communicated and conducted a Stakeholder Perception Survey across all regions of the world where our production bases and businesses are located. This is to ensure that our stakeholder engagement efforts are in line with universal standards and can be applied across all business groups. The Group has implemented the AA1000 Stakeholder Engagement Standard as a guideline in developing engagement plans and effective communication mechanisms, from the preparation of sufficient information and personnel for field operations, and key data analysis, through to reporting and follow-up.

In addition, the Group has collaborated with a variety of partners to exchange knowledge and experience by jointly driving sustainability through communications, activities, and projects that produce broad results while sustainably creating value for society and the country.

Stakeholder Engagement Process

At Charoen Pokphand Group, we recognize that our success is deeply intertwined with the well-being of our stakeholders, including employees, customers, investors, suppliers, communities, and the environment. We are committed to fostering strong and meaningful relationships with all those who are impacted by our business operations. To achieve this, we have implemented a robust stakeholder engagement process that ensures their voices are heard, and their concerns and expectations are addressed.

Contribution to Organizations

We at the Charoen Pokphand Group are determined that companies should remain neutral and nonpartisan in matters of politics. As part of our commitment to operating in an ethical and responsible manner, we refrain from engaging in any political-related groups or activities that would jeopardize our impartiality or integrity.

We are aware that the political landscape may be complex and ever-changing, with a wide range of groups and causes looking to corporations for funding. While we acknowledge that people and organizations have the right to participate in politics, we firmly think that our top priorities should be providing value to our stakeholders and making a positive impact on society. As a result, C.P. Group does not support, finance, or affiliate itself with any political parties, candidates, or groups.

The Process to Participate or Join Organizations

While the Charoen Pokphand Group does not engage in politics, we do actively participate in a number of non-political organizations and projects that are consistent with our fundamental principles and further societal improvement. The following guidelines serve as a guide for our participation in or affiliation with organizations:

  1. Alignment with Core Values: Before engaging with any organization, we carefully assess its mission, values, and objectives to ensure they are in harmony with our own commitment to sustainability, ethics, and corporate responsibility.
  2. Social Impact and Sustainability: We prioritize organizations that focus on social impact, environmental sustainability, and community development. With current concerns at the worldwide level, organizations with objectives toward climate change adaptation, as well as aligning their target and action plan in accordance with Paris Agreement will highly be considered for participation. By joining such initiatives, we aim to create a positive and lasting difference in the regions where we operate.
  3. Transparency and Accountability: We value transparency in all our interactions. Before partnering with any organization, we conduct thorough due diligence to ensure their operations are transparent, and their impact is measurable and accountable.
  4. Collaborative Approach: We believe in the power of collaboration. We actively seek opportunities to work with reputable non-governmental organizations (NGOs), industry associations, and other stakeholders to address shared challenges and achieve collective goals.
  5. Employee Involvement: Our employees play a vital role in shaping our engagement with external organizations. We encourage and support employee involvement in volunteering and community service activities that resonate with our values.

The guideline for participation will be reviewed annually, as well as alignment between the Group’s objectives and those of participating organizations. This is to ensure that there will be no misalignment occurring throughout the year.

In the case where C.P. Group found a misalignment between the Group’s objectives and those of participating organizations, the Group will request a discussion to create a mutual understanding and demonstrate the Group’s objectives. The organizations will be given a specific time period to revise its objectives and action plans, as agreed during the discussion. If the organization could not meet our requirements within the specific time, then the Group with withdraw our contribution and participation with such organization.
