The Annual Report on Annual Report 2020 is released

The 24th edition of the independent and international survey of corporate reporting best practice – Annual Report on Annual Reports – has been published. As previous years, Nordic companies dominate the top.

After reading and reviewing 1,000 annual reports from across the globe, the 350 best have been ranked and rated by an international team and external jury. Content such as business operations, sustainability, and financial data as well as design and layout have been assessed. The evaluation covered both online and PDF reports.

Many Swedish and other Nordic companies are found in the top 20 list, with SCA as number 1 and SKF number 3. Dutch AkzoNobel is this year’s first runner up. Two South African companies and two from Canada made it to the top 20.
