Compared


Noticed

Akzonobel

With its very holistic approach to value creation, it remains a model of integrated and sustainability reporting, also well served by a user-friendly online format.


BASF

Factors influencing sales are shown very clearly while the considerable decline in some items isn’t concealed -yet put in perspective. They are among other good features in an intelligible and well-supported Management's Report.


Bayer

The CEO is pictured as CEO but signing as Chairman, and concluding on new strength to be injected into the European ideal while acquiring Monsanto (and having more shareholders in the U.S. than in Germany)? Hmm, commitment to social responsibility, perhaps... Yet this needs to be demonstrated. For the rest, a Bayer report as (informative and heavy) as usual.


Clariant

A crystal-clear business model. The rest -i.e. the whole- is up to it.


DSM

Sustainability seems to be embedded in strategy, e.g. thanks to a specific Advisory Board. Clarity about reporting policy options.


DuPont

The last Annual Report -before the merger with Dow- doesn’t go further than a dull and conformist 10-K. The Data Book adds some value with figures yet some ratios may be questioned. The Sustainability Progress Report is short on real facts and slow to update.


FMC

Laudable efforts to make a 10-K more readable, but an unchanged structure means it’s just a halfway job.


K+S

An unexciting read. A report made in Deutschland über alles -neither worse nor better.


Lanxess

Another report that seems to have been written in corporate lingo and edited by consultants. However, it’s factual -check e.g. the Input-Output Balance Sheet and a solid Management Report- and charts are very legible. Why such an emphasis on last quarter in Key Data?


Linde

This report isn’t a real gas. And the arguments for a planned merger (of equals, of course) are mumbo-jumbo.


Mitsubishi Chemical

How to name it? MCHC? Mitsubishi Chemical? Kaiteki? Value creation and APTSIS (sic) are quite abstruse too. Dialog between CFO and Investor is commendable but makes a hard read.


Novozymes

An online report that works smoothly and effectively to deliver on many key reporting ingredients: e.g. Novozymes in a nutshell; key events; product launches; a nice business model exploration; and, last but not least, a strongly integrated approach.


Potashcorp

A sustained sense of packaging information, whether strategic or operational; and of delivering it, both online and in downloads. E.g. via an Integrated Reporting Center which sums up what matters most to stakeholders, tells much about (changes in) risks, and provides a special section made up of graphs. Notes to statements are outstandingly intelligible, too.


Sasol

Value chain, operating model and refined legal structures (sic), both external and internal operating context, and value creation set out very clearly. Check out KPIs and risk factors, too.


Sumitomo Chemical

Perfect overview of business sectors and their contribution. 17 Sustainable Development Goals highlighted in a rather solid CSR book that includes a wealth of environmental data.


Uralkali

Key Performance Indicators that mean something.


Yara

With its extensive menu, is the digital version supposed to be more convenient to use? Actually, due to basic navigation facilities, it isn’t. Content is satisfying but not made most persuasive in the market context.
