Open communication - “we convey precise and necessary information to all the parties with whom we collaborate. We do our utmost to ensure that the reports and documents we transmit to control or supervision authorities or we publish are complete and understandable.”

“The voice of stakeholders is important to us. We not only want to satisfy the expectations of our clients or employees but want to be frank with the business environment in the conduct of our operations. We believe that relations based on honesty and transparency are key to success. Therefore we are engaged in the dialogue with the environment, carry out regular questionnaires and dialogue sessions, and publish all key information that may contribute to better execution of our mission.”

Aleksandra Jakima-Moskwa, Investor Communication Coordinator

The material role played by stakeholders and their measurable impact on shaping the PZU Group’s operations mean that every company in it regularly updates its partner map, and drafts key forms of dialogue with the various groups. They are selected on the basis of the importance of relations and the extent of the links to the PZU Group.

The stakeholder map has been presented below with the stakeholders having been chosen on the basis of the extent of their involvement in the Group’s operations and their materiality from the viewpoint of the business model. This map does not cover the activities of the Pekao Group or Alior Bank where different approaches to external relations are in place.
