HOCHTIEF’s stakeholders

HOCHTIEF has identified as stakeholders those groups which significantly influence the economic, ecological, and social performance of HOCHTIEF or may do so in the future, as well as those groups which are significantly affected by our Group’s economic, ecological, and social performance or may be affected in the future.

  • Government and public authorities
  • Investors, analysts and bank representatives

Stakeholder communications and information culture

We also attach great importance to transparency in liaison with stakeholders. We also attach great importance to transparency in liaison with stakeholders. We seek goal-oriented dialog with representatives of industry, government, and society, our business partners and investors at local, national, and international level. Our policy of providing open, timely information equips stakeholders to build a picture of the company and reach decisions. In return, this active dialog with stakeholders enables HOCHTIEF to take their requirements, wishes, and expectations on board in its business activities and continue the selective development of our products and services.

Image and reputation

How do outsiders see HOCHTIEF? The clear majority of those surveyed in a study named HOCHTIEF first when they were asked which large companies in the German construction industry they were familiar with. This is the result of the image and reputation analysis that HOCHTIEF commissioned in 2015 (as in past years) from an independent market research institute. 85 percent of those surveyed described the Group’s image as good to excellent (see presentation). We thank you for your trust.
