City of Ryde wins eighth consecutive Gold Annual Report Award
Published on 21 June 2018
The City of Ryde has won an eighth consecutive Gold Award for its Annual Report at the 2018 Australasian Reporting Awards.
The awards are the leading benchmark in government and corporate reporting, with judging determined by each entrant’s ability to achieve overall excellence in annual reporting, provide full disclosure of key aspects of its core business, address legislative and regulatory requirements and be a model for other peer reports.
A report that achieves a Gold Award is of such a high standard as to be a model for other organisations to follow. This latest Gold Award has been for the City of Ryde’s 2016/17 Annual Report.
City of Ryde Mayor, Clr Jerome Laxale, said the eighth straight Gold Award underlined the strong governance protocols that Council had established and adhered to.
“The Australasian Reporting Awards provide organisations the chance to benchmark their reports against world best practice criteria in reporting. This means that by achieving a Gold Award, the City of Ryde’s Annual Report satisfies that criteria to the highest possible standard,” Clr Laxale said.
“To achieve this recognition eight years in a row is an outstanding achievement. I would like to congratulate the executive team at the City of Ryde as well as all staff who were involved in the production of the 2016/17 Annual Report.”
The awards are administered by Australasian Reporting Awards Limited, an independent not-for-profit organisation run by volunteer professionals from the business, government and not-for profit sectors, with the support of organisations concerned with the quality of financial and business reporting.
