We created belief….

… by describing SGS through the eyes of its employees

Avoiding industry jargon

SGS are a Swiss multinational company providing inspection, verification, testing and certification services. They are a sophisticated reporter, having embraced integrated reporting and a total impact methodology that quantifies their value to society. 

This year, our third together, the project brought three challenges. To engage the reader in an industry that can be difficult to understand, to communicate progress against a key strand of its strategy and to streamline by dropping a separate sustainability report.

Unlocking passion and expertise

To make SGS more accessible we described it through the eyes of its employees. Bold portraits conveyed their passion and expertise and reflected the diverse nature of the business. In addition, a Q&A approach for the CEO’s statement, carried a more personal style into the report. 


We continued the move away from industry jargon to language that everyone can understand while giving SGS more ownership of the content. The design is precise and represents the work that SGS does on the ground.
