Top campaigns, agencies and advertisers for Socially Responsible Communication

The Good Report is 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. It is produced by ACT Responsible in collaboration with WARC, the worldwide authority on marketing and media effectiveness and publisher of the WARC Creative 100 Rankings, a global benchmark of creative excellence in advertising.

Advertising is advertising is not always given recognition for its role to inform, raise awareness and educate. Communication professionals’ commitment to promoting these causes is fundamental. Without their campaigns, important messages about good causes would not reach a large section of the public. We created “The Good Report” to celebrate the wonderful work and commitment that thousands of agencies make to support major causes, and to motivate and inspire creativity and the production of new campaigns.
