The dialogue process consists of various phases. The first major step is to identify the different types of stakeholders, namely all those who are directly or indirectly influenced by the company business and who, in turn, have an impact on the company. We have drawn up a map of our stakeholders showing the macro-categories of essential contacts: our customers, employees, suppliers, shareholders and backers, the institutions, the local community, the natural environment and the company itself.
Secondly, the analysis phase helps us assess the extent of the interaction between the stakeholders and the company in order to identify the best ways to dialogue.
Lastly, the most operational management phase enables us to identify the most suitable responses to the requests made by the stakeholders or by the company in order to continue to achieve the corporate objectives according to expectations.

Acea Group’s Stakeholder Engagement Project
In the course of 2020 we went ahead with activities to implement the Acea Group Stakeholder Engagement Project, with a view to integrating a structured stakeholder engagement as part of the corporate processes and business activities and spreading the culture of a strategic approach towards stakeholders, considering the evolutions in the reference context and the Group’s development prospects.
During the months preceding the lockdown we carried out two internal engagement initiatives, with physical presence, aimed at defining operational tools (toolboxes) designed to identify and map stakeholders and to plan and implement engagement modalities. Following the epidemic emergency, we continued with the project in virtual mode, establishing the Stakeholder Engagement Guidelines and planning the tools identified during the previous phase, also drawing up the Group Stakeholder Tree. Lastly, during 2020, we carried out two pilot projects with the companies Gori and Acea Ambiente.
