The ASRA in a different way: Due to the corona, the 21st Austrian Sustainability Reporting Awards for the best sustainability reports in the country will take place virtually this year. This did not detract from the joy of the eight winners from 36 entries. The OeKB Group took first place in the Large Companies category. In the SME category, VBV Vorsorgekasse landed in first place, and the sporting goods manufacturer Löffler impressed among the first-time winners.
The Wienerberger Group was also very happy, having received an ASRA for the fourth time in a row and starting a new, ambitious sustainability program in January 2021 with a focus on decarbonization, circular economy and biodiversity (see also Interview with Wienerberger CEO Heimo Scheuch). The other award winners awarded by the Chamber of Tax Advisors and Auditors as well as cooperation partners include Vöslauer Mineralwasser, BKS Bank, Fair-finance Vorsorgekasse and Innsbruck municipal operations.
