Ceres-ACCA Reporting Awards
Since 2002, Ceres and the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) have given out annual awards recognizing excellence in sustainability reporting in North America. Learn more about past winners of the awards here.
Ceres has decided to not host the awards program in 2012, taking time to consider opportunities for a new awards program in the future.
2010 Best Sustainability Report: Nike
Nike’s report addresses the new context within which business must operate—one with a rising global population, decreasing natural resources, and an unstable climate—and reveals how Nike, in an effort to take a competitive advantage, is shifting to a more sustainable business model. In the report, Nike recognizes that “sustainability is a route to profitability,” and to that end the report details how the company is integrating sustainability into strategic planning and decision-making, from its board of directors, to its product designers and across its supply chain. The report also demonstrates the company’s commitment to scaling sustainability solutions through the open sourcing of its audit and design tools and its integral role in the creation of the Green Xchange platform.
2010 Best First Time Report: Anvil Knitwear
Anvil Knitwear’s first sustainability report demonstrates the company’s commitment to the integration of sustainability into its business model. The company uses the web to deliver a compelling report and candidly describes key challenges facing the company and its industry. Anvil also drives consumer education through its interactive website TrackMyT.com, which allows customers to input the tracking number from a t-shirt and learn how the product was produced from farm to store.
