The Integrity Star Award, presented by Global ESG Monitor, underscores the importance of high-quality, transparent and contextualized sustainability reporting as a direct reflection of a company’s integrity. This prestigious award is not about applauding operational models or financial successes; it centers around the clarity and detailedness in how businesses communicate their actions and impacts to their stakeholders. It recognizes that responsible companies do much more than just delivering financial performance. They do so with a commitment to responsibility and accountability in their communications.
