Awarding the best companies in digital comms

We welcomed a full house to the 2016 Lundquist European Seminar on Digital Corporate Communications & 15th Webranking Awards.

 

This year we awarded Italy listed and non-listed companies, and Swiss listed companies, as well as those companies who made it into our prestigious Hall of Fame. The Hall of Fame awards the companies who have consistently demonstrated excellence in communicating their stakeholders needs on their corporate website and via their digital channels.

Corriere Economia exclusively covers the 2016-2017 Webranking Italy rankings

Italian weekly Corriere Economia reports exclusively today the state of the art of Italian digital corporate communications in the latest Webranking by Comprend edition. Now in its 15th edition, the Italian ranking is conducted by Lundquist.

 

Webranking works as a stress test, in that it measures the fundamentals of online corporate and financial communications and dialogue of the largest listed companies, based on stakeholder demands. The research’s objective is to promote a digital culture within companies and help them understand how to meet the growing expectations of stakeholders.

 

Corriere Economia’s article (in Italian) argues the case for Italian mid-cap companies, which this year have made a significant leap forward in credibly communicating to their stakeholders.  Multi-utility company Gruppo Hera jumps to second place, with construction firm Salini Impreglio and renewable energy firm Erg making it into the top 10 for the first time. Hearing aid company Amplifon improves massively, jumping 21 points, from 44th place to 23rd.

Taking sustainability to the board level

Lundquist CSR Online AwardsWhat do investors think about sustainability issues? Do these issues influence their investment decisions? The need to mitigate risks, enhance long-term performance and attract younger investors is increasingly pushing investors to consider sustainability issues in their investment decisions.

 

With this in mind, how are companies and legislation responding to this changing scenario? At the beginning of this year we discussed the increased importance of ESG (Environment, Social, Governance) issues for investors and how this leads to increased internal collaboration between the legal affairs, investor relations, corporate communications and sustainability teams. EU legislation is now also pushing companies to address non-financial issues. By December 2016, EU Member States should transpose the rules on non-financial reporting into national legislation (Directive 2014/95/EU).
