(3BL Media / theCSRfeed) London - 24th March 2011 - The winners of the CR Reporting Awards 2011 (CRRA ‘11) have been announced at an invitation-only awards ceremony on Thursday, 24 March 2011, at the Royal Society in London. Details can be found at http://www.corporateregister.com/crra/.Now in their fourth year, the CR Reporting Awards are the only annual, global awards for Corporate Responsibility (CR) reporting. They identify and acknowledge the best CR reports across nine categories. The CRRA’11 solicited reports published between September 2009 and September 2010. Due to the high level of interest in the Awards, the number of entries in each category was capped. This year, 90 leading reporting companies, from well-known multinationals to local SMEs, entered their reports across nine categories. This year’s winners are: · Best report – Hewlett-Packard Company (United States) · Best first time report– Virgin Group Ltd (United Kingdom) · Best SME report – Pacific Hydro Pty Limited (Australia) · Best Integrated report – Natura Cosméticos SA (Brazil) · Best Carbon Disclosure – Vodafone Group plc (United Kingdom) · Creativity in Communications – Virgin Group Ltd (United Kingdom) · Relevance & Materiality – SABMiller plc (United Kingdom) · Openness & Honesty – Novo Nordisk A/S (Denmark) · Credibility through Assurance – Co-operative Group Limited (United Kingdom) CorporateRegister.com’s Paul Scott said: “We’ve seen CR reporting increase every year, with 2010 showing the strongest performance yet – nearly 5,000 reports worldwide. With so many companies reporting, we need a process to identify the reports which lead where others will follow. The CRRA provides this process, and once again we have a suite of worthy winners”. As a companion to this year’s awards ceremony CorporateRegister.com is hosting two online debates. Leading CR experts will set out the opposing sides of two hot CR reporting topics, and the public is invited to participate in an ongoing debate.
