Green Frog Award
Award for the Best Sustainability Report
About Green Frog Award
Deloitte has awarded the best sustainability report since 2009 when the competition was organised in Hungary for the first time. In subsequent years, companies from other CE countries including the Czech Republic joined the competition. The Green Frog Award aims to find the best non-financial reports in the CE region.
Applications for the 18th annual Deloitte Green Frog Award may be sent until the end of October 2018. Awards will be given in three categories: Best Non-Financial Report of the Country and the Region, Best Integrated Report of the Country and the Region and Special Award.
The Green Frog Award is realised at two levels:
- National level – Companies may demonstrate their sustainable activities at the national level by means of non-financial and integrated reports that are assessed by a national jury.
Companies whose reports receive the best evaluation will compete for the regional Green Frog Award. The winners will receive the national Green Frog Award for Non-Financial Reporting, Best Integrated Report or Special Award.
- Regional level – Companies awarded at the national level will automatically qualify for the CE round to be assessed by a regional jury. The winners will receive the CE Green Frog Award Non-Financial Reporting, Best Integrated Report or Special Award.
Conditions of the competition
The report should cover at least one area of the Central European region, being prepared for use on (a) local market(s). Global reports translated into the local language or the selection of best practices will not be assessed by the jury as part of Green Frog Awards.
Furthermore, reports focusing on a single sustainability issue, such as environmental reports, foundation’s reports etc, will not be accepted.
Language of the reports:
· National level – Companies may submit their reports in the national language or in English.
· Regional level – Reports will be assessed by an international jury. Therefore, companies qualifying for the regional level will be asked to submit the English version of the report if the original language version was different.
