Effective stakeholder engagement is critical to the long- term success and sustained growth of any business. Globaltrans has always valued regular and high quality engagement with its stakeholders and is committed to engaging with them in an open and transparent manner in order to build strong and trusted relationships. Our goal is to keep our stakeholders up-to-date on developments and create a better understanding of our business, our strategy and our performance.

As part of our daily operations, we regularly engage with employees, customers, government and regulators and with our local communities while at Group level the emphasis is on maintaining an open dialogue with investors, shareholders, credit rating agencies, financial institutions and the media.

Although 2020 was an extremely difficult and unusual year, we were able to maintain a high degree of engagement with our stakeholders.

Although much of our communications became virtual as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, it was more important than ever to keep these channels open. Globaltrans intensified its efforts to enhance communication around the impact of, and our response to, the COVID-19 pandemic that including with regard to the safety of our people, our business continuity and other ESG (environmental, social, and governance) issues. As is the case for many companies, business interactions, especially at Group level, have essentially become digital, including client communication, investor roadshows and conferences.

The corporate website remains the main source of information on the Company: results presentations, webcasts, current and historical financial information, news releases, market statistics, and other important data can be found there. Due to its importance to our communications strategy, the Globaltrans’ website was revamped and relaunched in early 2020 to provide visitors with a better online experience. We have added a separate section on sustainability given our increasing commitment to this important issue.
