ABOUT THE GOOD REPORT

The Good Report is a collaboration between ACT Responsible and The Gunn Report the global index of creative excellence in advertising, was created in 2013. It’s a unique ranking of the world’s best use of creative communications to promote sustainability and social responsibility to raise awareness of major social and environmental issues.

Advertising is too often confined to its commercial side; we tend to forget the other part of its role: informing, raising awareness and educating. No specific recognition is offered to agencies that give time and talent to support the communication of public interest causes. Nonetheless, the commitment of communication professionals to these causes is fundamental; without communication campaigns, good causes couldn’t make themselves known to the majority. We have created «The Good Report» to celebrate the wonderful work and commitment that thousands of agencies are making to support these major causes, in order to further motivate and inspire creativity as well as the production of new campaigns.

“The Act Responsible Expo is one of the must see exhibitions at Cannes Lions each year. It honours the hugely valuable job our industry does, throughout the year in countries all round the world, in multiplying the impact and effectiveness of communications for Good Causes. The Good Report adds a commendable extra dimension to their mission and we are proud to be a part of it”
