Eskom wins award

Pretoria – Eskom has been named the overall winner of the 2013 Nkonki State Owned Companies (SOC) Integrated Reporting Awards for a second year running.

The awards recognise state-owned companies that have excelled in integrated reporting in the country in 2012.

Accepting the award on the power parastatal’s behalf on Wednesday, Eskom Group Financial Controller, Aman Jeawon said the accolade recognised Eskom’s commitment to transparency and to being a leader in integrated reporting.

“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,” said Jeawon.

Eskom also scooped several other 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.

Jeawon said that the parastatal’s reports have sought to provide analysts, investors and all stakeholders with a complete and transparent account of Eskom’s accomplishments, challenges and future priorities.

“This is in the true spirit of the underlying objectives of integrated reporting. As Eskom we are very privileged that for two years we have had the honour of receiving this award.

“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 said.

The Nkonki SOC Integrated Reporting Awards accolade follows Eskom’s squirrel award from the Investment Analysts Society last week for the “Best presentation to the Society (market cap above R30-billion)”. –
