  Why the Good Report?

Advertising is too often confined to its commercial side, and we tend to forget the other part of its role: information, awareness and education. For 15 years, we've collect the best ads promoting sustainability, equitable development and social responsibility in a bid to highlight how creativity is used to raise awareness on the world’s major issues. Still no specific recognition is offered to agencies, giving time and talent to support the communication of public interest causes. Yet the commitment of communication professionals for these causes is fundamental; without communication campaigns these causes couldn’t make themselves known to the greatest number. In a time of crisis, it is understandable that some agencies are pulling out under the guise of budget cuts. The association has decided to create The Good Report to celebrate agencies that continues to support these major causes, in order to motivate and inspire creativity and production.

"With The Good Report, ACT Responsible continues its mission of promoting, inspiring and federating the communications industry for the greater Good. Producing The Good Report with the collaboration of The Gunn Report Team is a great privilege for all “good” agencies around the globe" says Hervé de Clerck, ACT Responsible Dream Leader.

"ACT Responsible Expo is one of the biggest treats in store at Cannes Lions each year. It honors the hugely valuable job our industry does – every day of the year in countries all round the world – in multiplying the impact and effectiveness of communications for Good Causes. The Good Report (the name has a ring to it) adds a commendable new dimension to their mission" says Donald Gunn, Founder and ACT’ive Partners.
