Working closely with partners for progress

At Tata Steel, we treat all our stakeholders as partners in longterm value creation.

We have a robust stakeholder engagement process to foster and nurture relationships, which helps improve our strategy development and decision making. We are working towards delivering on stakeholder needs, interests and expectations. In Financial Year 2018-19, we conducted a pan‑India stakeholder engagement exercise to revisit the ESG issues that are material to our value-creation process amid the evolving global sustainability landscape.
