Stakeholders’ mapping process

Stakeholder mapping is a collaborative process of research, debate, and discussion that draws from multiple perspectives to determine a key list of stakeholders across the entire stakeholder spectrum. Mapping can be broken down into 4 phases:

  1. Identifying (listing relevant groups, organizations, and people)
  2. Analyzing (understanding stakeholder perspectives and interests)
  3. Mapping (visualizing relationships to objectives and other stakeholders)
  4. Prioritizing (ranking stakeholder relevance and identifying issues)

Stakeholders are:

  • Owners (e.g. investors, shareholders, agents, analysts, and ratings agencies)
  • Customers (e.g. direct customers, indirect customers, and advocates)
  • Employees (e.g. current employees, potential employees, retirees, representatives, and dependents)
  • Industry (e.g. suppliers, competitors, industry associations, industry opinion leaders, and media)
  • Community (e.g. residents near company facilities, chambers of commerce, resident associations, schools, community organizations, and special interest groups)
  • Environment (e.g. nature, nonhuman species, future generations, scientists, ecologists, spiritual communities, advocates, and NGOs)
  • Government (e.g. public authorities, and local policymakers; regulators; and opinion leaders)
  • Civil society organizations (e.g. NGOs, faith-based organizations, and labor unions)
