Cooperation with Stakeholders
We considered it highly important to interact with stakeholders on a continuous basis. A prerequisite for effective product and service development is a constant dialogue with our customers. The dialogue among employees contributes to a more effective operational performance and is a valuable information source for our product development. Several production sites are significant parts of the local community. Active cooperation with the surrounding community is therefore a natural part of everyday business. Metso communicates information on its status and performance in a transparent and open manner to all its stakeholders
