Nikkei Integrated Report Award
Held annually by Nikkei Inc. since 1998, the Nikkei Annual Report Awards aim to improve and promote annual reports published by Japanese companies. In recent years, annual reports have evolved to include both financial information and ESG and other non-financial information as “integrated reports,” which have drawn a great deal of attention. In light of these circumstances, Nikkei Inc. renamed the Nikkei Annual Report Award in 2021 as the Nikkei Integrated Report Award. In addition to introducing an expanded, multi-tiered judging system, Nikkei Inc. has also restructured and improved its awards framework. A total of 290 companies participated in the Nikkei Integrated Report Award 2021, which included: 1 Grand Prize (Sojitz), 3 Second Prizes, 3 Special Recognition awards, and 14 Excellence awards.
