Top Marks in the 2019 Swiss Annual Report Rating

Zurich – It was that time of year again. On September 18, 2019, annual reports with the highest scores from distinguished members of three juries were honored in Zurich. Three of our consulting clients were delighted to receive excellent ratings: Clariant AG, a global specialty chemicals company, Geberit AG, a sanitary products manufacturer with headquarters in Rapperswil-Jona and the Swiss-listed national bank Liechtensteinische Landesbank.

The Annual Report Rating evaluates companies listed in the Swiss Performance Index (SPI), together with the best-performing, non-listed companies, insurances companies and banks in Switzerland. The current ranking includes 238 companies. The rating is organized by HarbourClub, an organization of executives in the field of corporate communications at Swiss companies.

Clariant received first place in the “Value Reporting” category for its innovative approach to integrated reporting, which holistically demonstrates how the company creates value for all its stakeholders. In the contest for the overall winner, two companies whose sustainability reporting we had the opportunity to help advance in previous years stood on the podium, with Geberit in second place and the Liechtensteinische Landesbank as the overall winner.

“We’ve worked with Sustainserv on preparing our sustainability reports in accordance with the standards of the Global Reporting Initiative since our 2016 annual report.They perfectly understand how to meet our needs and concerns.Our longtime partnership is the building block for the progress we made from year to year.”
— Cyrill Sele, Head of Group Corporate Communications and General Secretary, Liechtensteinische Landesbank

Our company motto “Inspiring meaningful change” — definitely demonstrates its impact on both sides. Working towards long-term, sustainable economic change is — in the best possible way — a collaborative enterprise that has an equal impact on both clients and consultants. The top three Annual Report Rating marks show the extent to which this idea can be successfully implemented.
