Sateri’s Sustainability Report Wins the 2018 Golden Bee Excellent CSR Report Award

Shanghai, China. 6 December 2018 — Sateri, one of the global leading producers of viscose for textile and personal hygiene products, has been recognised for its leadership in sustainability performance and reporting.

Sateri was awarded the Golden Bee Excellent CSR Report 2018 under the category “Foreign-invested and Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan-invested Enterprise” at the 11th Global Corporate Social Responsibility Report Forum organised by China WTO Tribune. The annual awards are established to identify and reward companies for their excellence in sustainability reporting, as well as to encourage more companies in China to begin or improve the quality of sustainability reporting.

About 1,580 entries were reviewed, of which 80 received the awards. The judging panel evaluated the CSR reports from six dimensions: structural integrity, content substance, performance comparability, report credibility, report readability, and report innovation.

Sateri has been given this accolade because its Sustainability Report 2017 is comprehensive, having clearly articulated the Group’s long-term approach to sustainability, as well as detailed environmental and social performance of its viscose and yarn operations.

Sateri also improved the credibility of its report by appointing an independent third party to verify and assure that its report is accurate, reliable and provides a fair and balanced representation of Sateri’s sustainability activities.

Sateri Chief Operating Officer Allen Zhang said, “Wherever the operations are located, governments and society are increasingly holding companies accountable for their environmental and social footprint. Sateri believes that sustainability reporting not only demonstrates transparency and accountability but also acts as management tool to guide companies identify areas for improvement. We are proud to be given this award, and will continue to advance the quality of our reporting to help us better our sustainability performance.”

Our Sustainability Report 2017 is available in two languages – English and Chinese – and can be downloaded on our website here.
