Corporate & Financial Awards success

Posted in News on 18 November 2020 By Molly McKinnel, Marketing Executive

In a tumultuous year laden with doubt and uncertainty, celebrating exceptional work has never been more important. 

We are delighted that our clients Coats Group plc and Howden Joinery Group plc have been recognised at Communicate Magazine's Corporate & Financial Awards 2020.

Coats won gold for best online report, FTSE 250 and Howdens picked up silver for best printed report, FTSE 250, and highly commended for their sustainability report.

Coats Group plc is a world-leading manufacturer, with a presence in over 100 countries. They have a digitally-led reporting approach, requiring a succinct and engaging online summary to capture key messages from the printed annual report. For the summary, we needed to deliver a truly on-brand, industry-leading digital experience. The winning one-page summary included a montage of Coats footage, featuring products and people, overlaid with details of their proposition.

Fitted kitchen supplier Howdens Joinery worked with Emperor to provide a more comprehensive ‘at a glance’ information to its report. This was particularly important for detail regarding purpose, culture and strategy. Their reports also improved the clarity and detail on the links between ESG, long-term value and governance.
