Ocado Group plc, the world’s largest dedicated online grocery retailer, has won the award for ‘Corporate Governance Reporting in the FTSE 250’ at the PwC Building Public Trust Awards that took place on 2 December.
The judges commented that, “Ocado wins the FTSE 250 award for governance reporting with an attractive and well-designed annual report that provides the key information clearly and succinctly, without burying it in ‘boiler-plate’ disclosures. In particular, the judges noted how the most relevant areas of the Governance Code were pulled out in the chairman’s governance introduction, and in the audit committee report. ‘Overall, this is reporting that’s very clear, logical, readable and well-integrated,’ commented one member of the panel. The judges were also impressed by Ocado’s strong use of embedded links between its online information and annual report.”
