“Falcon Windsor has supported us reliably on our journey towards integrated reporting over the past two years with consultancy on both strategy and content. This has been no easy challenge, given the scale and complexity of our story. Claire’s sensitivity towards internal as well as external stakeholders, and her appreciation of the business context, made her an invaluable member of the team. Her cheerful approach to project management has made a tricky project perfectly manageable – dare I say enjoyable! At the same time, Paul’s copywriting has been second to none, demonstrating the links between our financial and non-financial drivers with great skill.”
What we’ve done for ArcelorMittal
Integrated annual review
Following our work on ArcelorMittal’s online sustainable development report in 2015, in 2016 we helped the company with its first step towards integrated reporting. As part of the Investis digital team, we worked closely with ArcelorMittal, advising on how to develop their report strategy and content to bring together the financial, operational and sustainability content into a coherent annual review that was a fair assessment of the company’s position for the year. We also advised ArcelorMittal on their move to continuous narrative reporting. This year, we took on the editorial as well, writing both the review and the SD sections of the 20F. The IIRC commended the review as presenting a truly integrated narrative.
Sustainable Development Report and online communications
In 2015, ArcelorMittal introduced a new sustainable development framework, based on 10 outcomes, which will enable the company to make a more sustainable future possible. The framework was launched with an ambitious online sustainable development report, marking the first step in the transformation of ArcelorMittal's approach to sustainability both internally and externally. Working as an extension of the Investis web agency team, we advised ArcelorMittal on reporting strategy and content, acting as a ‘critical friend’ to the Corporate Responsibility team. The report is a strategic milestone in putting the 10 outcomes at the heart of the business.
