Global Reporting Initiative Readers' Choice Awards shortlist announced
78 sustainability reports reach the final stage
14 Jan 2008
Does your organisation have a sustainability report in the running for the GRI Readers' Choice Awards? 78 sustainability reports have made the shortlist of the inaugural GRI Readers' Choice Awards. Nearly 800 entries were received from over 100 countries and the shortlisted reports were selected on the basis of:
- the highest volume of scores received
- the widest diversity of scorers (employees, media, civil society, investors, management and governance, etc)
Some of the world's most recognisable brands have made the shortlist, including Bayer, Telefonica, Nokia, BP, ABN Amro, GE, Coca Cola and GAP. In addition, the list also includes large companies from emerging markets such as Petrobras and Natura (Brazil), Chilectra (Chile), Tata Motors and ITC (India), PeMex (Mexico) and Sasol (South Africa).
Scoring will close on 31 January, so if your organisation has been listed, reach out to your stakeholders today and encourage them to logon to the Readers' Choice Awards to score your report. Whether they score you high or low you will learn new insights into what they think makes your report useful. The more scores you get, and the greater the diversity of scorer groups, the higher your chances are of winning.
What happens next?
The winners will be announced at the Global Conference on Sustainability and Transparency in Amsterdam on 7-9 May 2008. We hope you will be able to attend.
