We are excited to receive the third place award for Value Reporting from the Swiss Annual Report Rating in recognition of the quality of our annual integrated report.
The Swiss Annual Report Rating is the most significant recognition for Swiss reporting and has identified leading companies in reporting for almost 30 years. The award reflects the strong collaborative efforts of our reporting team, including corporate communications, finance, corporate sustainability and investor relations, and the contributions of all our colleagues in the network.
Over 236 annual reports from listed companies represented in the SPI were reviewed for this year’s Value Reporting award, which is based on availability and usability of informational content within a company’s annual report. The criteria analyzed were:
- General impression
- Background information
- Important non-financials
- Trend analysis
- Risk information
- Value-based compensation policy
- Management discussion and analysis of financial statements
- Target data and credibility
- Digital access to value reporting
The award was presented to SGS on Thursday, September 28.
“The recognition reflects our commitment to provide transparent and meaningful information to our stakeholders. I am proud of the team's collaboration and energy to produce a report that deserves the award,” said Toby Reeks, SVP Corporate Communications, Sustainability & Investor Relations.
