The study is designed to provide information to and raise awareness of a range of stakeholders in engagement such as shareholders, NGOs, trade unions, companies, etc. This Report essentially addresses the subject from the perspective of investors. Further developments are planned and will address this subject from the company’s perspective.

- The forms of expression of engagement: establishment of guidelines including Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) criteria, participation in Annual General Meetings and dialogue with issuers and their stakeholders;
