Corporate social responsibility - company law - corporate governance.

Stakeholders are all the people and bodies who have a legitimate interest in an organisation's activities, including shareholders but also covering a much wider group of interest holders.

One important group of stakeholders are lenders - also known as debt investors.


The term Stakeholders may be defined very broadly, and the breadth of its definition has been increasing over time.

In the business context, stakeholders are normally considered to include, as a minimum, shareholders, lenders and employees.
