Engagement Approach


ArchSD maintains our pragmatic stakeholder engagement mechanism to gain an in-depth understanding of the opinions, priorities and values of stakeholders with diverse backgrounds. We utilise our two-way communication channels to respond to their needs and establish mutual trust. Our stakeholder engagement approach is summarised as follows:

In preparing this report, ArchSD conducted a total of five independent interviews, in addition to the ongoing engagement practice with delegates of our key stakeholder groups. We engage representatives from staff, contractor, professional institution and client to better understand their concerns and obtain feedback for our continuous improvement on sustainable development and overall performance.
