Last week, in its 11th year, the PWC’s ‘Building Public Trust Awards’ announced Go-Ahead Group winner of the ‘Excellence in reporting in the FTSE 250’ for its 2012 Annual Report and Accounts, with another of our clients, African Barrick Gold, highly commended.
Go-Ahead, one of the UK's leading providers of passenger transport delivering bus and rail services to predominantly the South-east of England, has very good reason to win this category. Their commitment to high quality operations and operating responsibly is recognised and showcased through their reporting.
Their annual report is accessible to all: clear, consistent, and structured throughout. Beginning with the Business Review, the report includes the Group’s overview, risks, and KPI’s. The report develops into corporate governance including a comprehensive look at their Director’s remuneration report. Furthermore, their Financial Statements and Shareholder information gives an extensive review.
A business that clearly places “great importance on effective, open and transparent reporting” (Go-Ahead’s Group Finance Director – Keith Down). Congratulations Go –Ahead Group.
