Christchurch City Council 2003 annual report
Christchurch City Council 2003 annual report now available
Christchurch City Council’s annual report for the financial year to end-June 2003 is now available on the council website and in hard copy at its service centres around the city.
The document features a triple bottom line (TBL) reporting format, an attempt to measure the social and environmental impacts of the Council’s work during the year alongside the traditional monetary measurements.
The TBL approach is new and because there is as yet no accepted general practice for this form of reporting, the City Council would welcome any comments about its utility or suggestions about how it might be adapted and improved.
Local body annual reports compare actual results against targets and objectives set out in earlier plans for the year under review and aim to give people the information needed to gauge a council’s performance.
The Christchurch City Council Annual Report 2003 and audited financial statements were adopted by the City Council at its meeting on 25 November 2003.
