The Good Report ranks the world’s best use of creative communications to promote sustainability and social responsibility to raise awareness of major social and environmental issues. It is created in collaboration between ACT Responsible, the international non-profit association and largest global source of the world’s best ads on social and environmental issues, and The Gunn Report, the global index of creative excellence in advertising.
702 campaigns produced by 461 agencies for 608 advertisers from 71 countries were evaluated for this latest Good Report. The ranking is created by combining the industry’s recognition with the performance measured by The Gunn Report, as well as the promotional effort behind the campaigns and the general public’s recognition from public votes organised by ACT Responsible. There is no complicated criteria or categories, just great work for Good.
