Omnicom Media Group MENA has received the Best First Time Sustainability Report award for its inaugural report at the recently held Asia Sustainability Reporting Awards. The document, entitled Leaving a Mark, not a Footprint, was produced by the communications holding group in accordance with the GRI G4 Guidelines and was deemed the best introductory report to be produced by an organisation in Asia last year.
Held in Singapore and organised by CSRWorks International, the awards ceremony recognised organisations for excellence in reporting their sustainability initiatives. A gala dinner event was attended by dignitaries from companies, non-profit organisations, embassies, trade associations, advocacy organisations and academic institutions and was presided by the British High Commissioner to Singapore, H.E. Scott Wightman.
“Our first report was a deeply meaningful exercise, that allowed us to define our values, identify our priorities and quantify the impact we intend to have on a number of fronts, both internally and externally,” says Elie Khouri, CEO, Omnicom Media Group, MENA. “This recognition validates our efforts to lead the way in the area of sustainability, in the region as well as the communications industry. We will continue to adhere to the most advanced guidelines and protocols, pushing ourselves to reach the highest levels of integrity in order to contribute to a more sustainable future for ourselves, our partners and our community.”
