For this edition, we reached out to almost 60 people from 39 organisations (see figure below). They were all invited for every stakeholder meeting. Three stakeholder’s dialogues were organised (18/12/2018, 22/3/2019, 26/6/2019). Stakeholders gave their views on the global scoping of the 2019 report, on the choice and content of the four narratives and on the materiality matrix. As much as possible, received feedback was taken into account in the further development of the report.
Overview of invited external stakeholders. Stakeholders marked with a ‘*’ participated in at least one of the stakeholders dialogues or gave written feedback on documents.
Stakeholders were selected based on inputs from the different essenscia experts. For this edition, some external experts were specifically added as a result of the evolution in the materiality of some topics. Since plastics and climate change attract special attention in the public debate, new stakeholders related to these topics were also added.
