This is a recognition that can be gained by the best domestic and regional sustainability reporting companies. Deloitte aims to reward outstanding performance in non-financial reporting in Central European countries. Any non-financial report may be submitted to the Green Frog Award, but the evaluation shall give priority to reports that take into account the guidelines for promoting economic, environmental and social sustainability (GRI G4, GRI Standards, IIRC, Global Compact, ISO 26000 standards).
This year, the independent jury awarded BorsodChem's report to the Best First Report, bringing our company to the Central European Finals, where the winners of 13 countries contest for the best in the region. According to the independent jury's assessment, BorsodChem's Report is well-structured, transparent, sector-specific, and contains all relevant information in an easily accessible and understandable way.
By publishing the Sustainability Report our company is committed to raising the environment, social responsibility and sustainability to a high level. The management of the company has emphasized its responsibility for the future, and these aspects are increasingly prominent in its decisions. It also provided all the resources for the Sustainability Report, enabling us to deliver a first Report worthy of the company's reputation.
In connection with the Green Frog Award, which was presented for the 18th time this year, it can be seen that, besides the large companies that have been regularly performing for years, more and more market players are beginning to deal with the sustainability assessment of their performance. Deloitte's experts in environmental protection, sustainability and climate change are expected to further increase the number of Sustainability and CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) reports in the coming years.
We would also like to express our gratitude to those responsible for the areas concerned for their excellent cooperation in reporting, which has made it possible to produce a high-quality report and win the Green Frog Award.
In the first half of 2019, we plan to issue the second BorsodChem Sustainability Report covering the period from 2017 to 2018. We believe that by working closely, by providing accurate, timely data, we will once again produce a high quality report that will strengthen positive relationships with stakeholders and achieve similar successes. We are proud of the results we have achieved so far, as the company's reputation is a value for all of us.
