The Report also received an Honorable Mention in the Print Publication category.
In summarizing the Report’s award, PR Daily wrote:
“The data in the report is drawn from an impressive program that captures annual progress by aggregating the environmental metrics of ACI member organizations that participate in the program. ACI turned creative development over to CooperKatz & Company, which used an open design with simple graphics and well-written, descriptive text to deliver an eminently readable narrative that makes a strong case for an industry committed to ongoing reduction of its impact on the environment.
“The online version of the report is solid, along with ACI’s strategy to attract social media attention, but the print version of the 2017 report was gorgeously printed and made available to ACI’s member companies. The report also attracted news media attention, resulting in multiple stories in industry and environmental publications. It stands as an archetype for what a sustainability report can do for an organization or industry.”
For ACI, the recognition reflects its mission to lead sustainability initiatives.
“Ultimately, we are using the results from our 2017 Sustainability Report as a foundation for transformational change,” said Melissa Hockstad, ACI President & CEO. “As the trade association for the cleaning product supply chain, ACI commits to leading the charge in sustainable leadership throughout our industry.”
Besides the PR Daily Awards just announced, ACI’s 2017 Sustainability Report received several other honors, including:
• PR Daily Nonprofit PR Awards: Best Print Publication; Honorable Mention, Annual Report category.
• Six awards from the League of American Communications Professionals (LACP) in its Vision Awards annual report competition.
• Three Honorable Mentions in PR News NonProfit Awards and CSR Awards categories.
