Awards, awards and more awards
Last week's Australasian Reporting Awards (ARA) resulted in massive success for every one of our clients who entered (all two of them!) But 100% success is still 100% success. And as Insight is the common denominator, let's draw this achievement to your attention.
NZ Super Fund
Not only did the 2015 NZ Super Fund annual report receive a Gold Award (one of only four New Zealand companies to receive a Gold), it also won best of two categories in the Special Awards:
Winner, Governance Reporting - Public Sector, and
Winner, Online Reporting - Public Sector
And all this on top of last month's win as Best Annual Report in the 2016 Asia-Pacific Excellence Awards
Our Sanford Integrated Report also made a big impact at the Awards, also winning a Gold Award, and also taking out a total of three categories in the Special Awards:
Winner, Sustainability Reporting Award - Private Sector
Winner, Integrated Reporting
Winner, ARA Hong Kong Sustainability Award

Congratulations too, to the only other New Zealand company to win a Special Award: Watercare Services (Sustainability Reporting Award - Other).
