Ports of Auckland annual report wins 3rd Gold Award

Ports of Auckland’s 2003 annual report won a Gold in the 54th Australasian Annual Reporting Awards in Sydney on 14 May, against tough competition from leading Australian and New Zealand companies and government agencies.

Ports of Auckland was one of only two New Zealand companies to win a Gold Award.

The ARA Awards provide the opportunity to benchmark against world best practice in business communication and sustainability reporting. The criteria reflect the principles of the Global Reporting Initiatives (GRI), which are international benchmark indicators for sustainability reporting.

“We’re thrilled to have performed so well once again – it is our third Gold in a row. As a member of the New Zealand Business Council for Sustainable Development, we are very pleased to see the high quality of our sustainability reporting confirmed,” said Ports of Auckland Chief Executive Geoff Vazey, who received the Gold Award on behalf of the company.

“However, while it’s gratifying to win awards, the annual report is a practical document and an important communication tool that we use year round for a variety of purposes. A lot of effort goes into producing quality information for our diverse stakeholder groups.”

In presenting the Gold award, ARA Chairman John Horder said: “Ports of Auckland has produced an informative report that makes use of excellent design and photographs to enhance the readers’ understanding of its business. It includes tables and graphics to identify the operational and financial highlights.”

Mr Horder said that the continuing strong interest in the ARA Awards demonstrates there is a solid core of responsible managers who are striving to achieve world best practice in reporting.
