The CR Reporting Awards (CRRA) by Corporate Register honored Guess with the award for ‘Innovation in Reporting’ for its FY18-19 Sustainability Report: Evolution! Change for Good. Guess also earned first runner up for CRRA’s ‘Credibility through Assurance’ honor. Guess was chosen for its dedication to clear and engaging messaging within the report. With bold graphics and brand imagery included throughout, the report communicates complicated subject matter—which spans three years—in an organized manner.
The report has been written in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) standards and has been rigorously reviewed by accounting firm KPMG for external assurance. Further, the brand offers the report in a number of different languages, including Spanish, Chinese, French, Italian and Korean, and created an abridged version.
For this year’s awards, Corporate Register received more than 150 entries from 80 organizations to consider for recognition. Over 65,000 industry members vote for winners, who are selected across 11 categories based on the quality of reporting content, communication and credibility. H&M also received accolades for its 2018 Sustainability Report, receiving first place for ‘Relevance & Materiality’ and ‘Creativity in Communications.’
