It provides an evaluation of the company’s current program with an eye toward improvement to manage its business with the future in mind by building infrastructure that improves quality of life.
Granite was the only North American company to win Gold in its category.
The International ARC Awards, now in its 34th year, is the “Academy Awards of Annual Reports,” according to the financial media. The awards are globally recognized, providing a platform for the highest standards in the annual report industry. It is the world’s largest international competition honoring excellence in annual reports.
The competition is open to corporations, small companies, government agencies, non-profit organizations and associations, as well as agencies and individuals involved in producing annual reports. Winning an ARC is one of the leading accolades in the investor-relations industry.
“Granite’s 2019 Sustainability Progress Report was produced in partnership with Granato Creative and Granite’s in-house design team. “Granite’s Sustainability Council and other in-house experts also contributed to our success,” said Granite Sustainability Specialist Raven Adams. “We are honored that our report has been recognized with this ARC Gold Award.”
