We are committed to building a better world — A Better Circle — and we can’t do it alone. Eastman seeks collaboration and insight from stakeholders along our entire value chain to help us develop innovative solutions and drive positive change.
We take a holistic, cross-functional approach to stakeholder engagement. As a publicly traded, global company, Eastman engages with and represents a broad range of stakeholders — from employees, communities, customers, suppliers and investors to consumers, influencers, nongovernmental organizations, regulatory agencies and academia. We proactively engage them at the corporate, regional and local levels, and we consider all requests, using a methodical approach to each engagement.
Stakeholders are evaluated by many factors, including connection to our industry, willingness to engage, subject expertise and more. Stakeholder engagement varies in type and frequency by stakeholder group, some of which are listed on this page.
