This week, we took home two ICSA awards to add to the cabinet. Vodafone’s annual report swept up Sustainability Disclosure of the Year, and Risk Disclosure of the Year went to Smith & Nephew. In addition, Vodafone was also given a ‘highly commended’ nod in the same category. The ICSA awards are prestigious in the industry and we’re delighted that our clients and team have been recognised.
We’re also extremely proud that the 2017 annual report for our client Umicore was the winner of Best Impact Sustainability Report in the Awards for Best Belgian Sustainability Reports. In the words of the awards body:
“The jury appreciated the strong link with stakeholders, the mention of the shortcomings which makes it a balanced and honest report in positive and negative announcements. The reports shows clear linkages between strategy and context. The report provides for a lot of information but is easy to use, thanks to a clear analysis based on the value chain, linked to materiality and targets. It also provides for assurance by an independent registered auditor.”
