Ceres Sustainability Reporting Awards
At the annual Ceres conference held earlier this week, Timberland was very proud to accept the award for the Best Sustainability Report. We’re honored to receive this important recognition, particularly considering the first-class caliber of contenders we were up against, including:
Ford Motor Company
(First Runner Up, Best Sustainability Report)
Ford’s 2008-09 Blueprint for Sustainability Report addresses the fundamental challenge of sustainability and includes candid discussion about Ford’s past performance, mistakes made and how they’re working to further integrate sustainability into their business model.
(Best Small and Medium-Sized Enterprise Report)
Seventh Gen’s 2008 Corporate Consciousness Report includes focus on two key considerations for sustainable business: supply chain and competition. The report features an in-depth discussion about how the company engages with its manufacturing partners to improve sustainability performance, as well as how it uses industry collaboration to create positive change.
The fact that the Ceres-ACCA Reporting Awards program is ten years old and counting is testament itself that there is a real need for and interest in business communicating openly and honestly about its efforts to create positive environmental and social impact. We’ve drawn insight and inspiration from past award recipients, and we hope we can live up to their leadership and do the same for other organizations.
