Sanford takes out top sustainability and integrated reporting awards

Sanford Group Financial Controller Stuart Houliston, GM Sustainability Lisa Martin and CEO Volker Kuntzsch with the awards.

Sanford has taken out a Gold Award for their 2015 Annual Report and three special awards for sustainability and integrated reporting at the 2016 Australasian Reporting Awards.

CEO Volker Kuntzsch, who attended the awards ceremony in Sydney with Sanford Group Financial Controller Stuart Houliston and General Manager for Sustainability Lisa Martin, said he was very proud of the Sanford team.

“We have been rewarded for our efforts in creating more transparency in the seafood industry.”

“The awards recognise that Sanford is committed to sustainability across all areas of our business, sustainability is the foundation of our industry.” Kuntzsch said.

Alongside the Gold Award for reporting, Sanford also won the ARA Sustainability Reporting Award, the ARA Hong Kong Sustainability Reporting Award and was the winner in the Integrated Reporting category.

“At the ARA, we acknowledge and reward emerging forms of external reporting with our Special Awards, including Integrated Reporting, which is our newest Special Award”, Suresh Guganesan, Chair, Australasian Reporting Awards said.

“Sanford is clearly a leader with a Report that demonstrates honesty about the challenges faced, providing a level of credibility not often seen.”

The ARA judges commented “we enjoyed reading the Sanford Report, we will remember it and look forward to reading it again next year.”

The ARA seeks reports that provide a balanced and reasonable picture of their economic, environmental, and social performance; facilitate comparability, benchmarking and assessment of performance; and address issues of concern to stakeholders.

The Australasian Reporting Awards is a non-profit organisation, founded in 1950 with the goal of improving financial reporting standards.
