Three Black Sun clients shortlisted for awards
Amlin, BAE Systems and Electrocomponents have all made the shortlist for a brilliant total of seven categories at this year’s prestigious industry awards.
The ICSA Hermes Transparency in Governance Awards are now in their third year and aim to encourage improvements both in the disclosure process and in governance performance itself. They have the backing of the Government, the Financial Reporting Council (FRC), the Association of British Insurers (ABI), the Confederation of British Industry (CBI) and the Financial Times.
For companies within the FTSE 100, BAE Systems has been shortlisted for four categories to include: best Annual Report; best board disclosure; best strategy disclosure and best remuneration disclosure.
For companies within the FTSE 250, Amlin has been shortlisted for two categories including best Annual Report and best strategy disclosure. Electrocomponents have also been shortlisted within the best risk management disclosure.
The ICSA Hermes Transparency in Governance Awards are not open for nomination and the review process is entirely independent, ensuring winners are recognised for their disclosure alone. ICSA and Hermes critically review the annual reports of all FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 companies and shortlist only those which meet the highest standards of disclosure.
The 2011 Awards will be presented at a gala Awards Ceremony at The Brewery, London on 16 November 2011. Last year’s ceremony was attended by Company Secretaries from some of the UK’s top companies as well as business leaders from across the spectrum, government representatives, and figures from some of the UK’s top business organisations.
