Stakeholder Engagement

At Dunkin’ Brands, we believe ongoing engagement with a broad range of stakeholders – including our franchisees, employees, guests, shareholders and regulators – is critical to our long-term success.

We have been a member of Ceres, a nonprofit organization that mobilizes investors, companies and public interest groups to expand the adoption of sustainable business practices, since 2010. We participate in multi-stakeholder calls convened by Ceres on a biannual basis to review our material issues, evaluate our priorities and identify emerging issues.

We employ a range of mechanisms to ensure we are communicating regularly and transparently on the issues that matter most to our stakeholders. For more information on our stakeholders and how we engage, please visit our 2016 CSR Report.
