26 June 2013 – Eskom was the overall winner of the 2013 Nkonki state-owned companies (SOC) integrated reporting awards. This is the second year in succession that Eskom has received this accolade.
Eskom also scooped several other awards at the Nkonki SOC integrated reporting awards in the following categories; ethical leadership and corporate citizenship; boards and directors; compliance with laws, codes, rules and standards; internal audit; the governance of risk; integrated reporting and disclosure; and the framework for integrated reporting.
These awards recognise state-owned companies that have excelled in integrated reporting in South Africa during 2012. Eskom group financial controller, Aman Jeawon, says, “Eskom is a significant player in every aspect of the South African economy. We have a responsibility to share information in a transparent and meaningful way with all our stakeholders.”
Eskom’s reports have sought to provide analysts, investors and all stakeholders with a complete, interdependent and transparent account of Eskom’s accomplishments, challenges and future priorities.
“We have made significant efforts in improving the quality of information, the accuracy of information and also the timeliness of information throughout the year, so that we can ensure that we inform our stakeholders in the most material and meaningful way possible,” Jeawon says.
The Nkonki SOC Integrated Reporting Awards accolade follows Eskom’s squirrel award from the Investment Analysts Society recently for the “Best presentation to the Society (market cap above R30-billion)”.
