Best communication of sustainability

Award Description

For this award we are looking for evidence of year-round communications with investors. This should demonstrate how you communicate the oversight of the identification, assessment, and management of ESG risks, opportunities and performance at your business.

The evidence should demonstrate the extent to which ESG workstreams are integrated in the company’s strategy, contribute to its competitiveness and resiliency, and have a positive impact on its ecosystem of stakeholders.

We recognise that this is a rapidly evolving area for many companies and each will be at different stages of their journey. We would like to see businesses demonstrate that their internal approaches are being streamlined in sync with the evolving needs of their stakeholders and that ESG communications are reflective of a holistic and collaborative approach across the organisation, rather than being a product of one department or team.

Businesses are expected to adopt a rigorous approach to communicating long-term value and the wider environmental and social impact of their operations. There is increasing scrutiny from all stakeholders on concrete steps companies are taking to anticipate, address and mitigate financial impacts of ESG issues. A real opportunity exists for companies to be proactive in setting out their ESG strategies, achievements and challenges as part of reporting against relevant frameworks and when engaging with the investment community.

Overall, judges will be looking for evidence of a clearly defined approach, with a consistent and proactive point of view on material ESG issues and long-term value creation across all communications with investors.

Provide any links to relevant material to support your submission and evidence success.

Please note Small-cap, Mid-cap and Large-cap criteria will be comparable to FTSE 100, 250 and Small-cap/AIM market cap sizes as at March 31, 2022.
