Judge's comments 

Truworths’ report clearly shows that the group continues to think carefully about the best way to explain how they intend to create sustainable value in the short, medium and long term. The report is crisp, concise and appropriately focused around the core theme of ‘sustainable future in fashion,’ while clearly identifying the factors that have the potential to impact the sustainability of the business. 

Whilst the report is not structured around the ‘six capitals,’ an introduction to the report clearly indicates where the capitals are covered within the integrated report. We found this to be a sensible and acceptable way of dealing with this new concept. The report focuses on eight issues that are considered to be material to stakeholders and which could impact on value creation within the business. 
 
The way in which this report presents and integrates the group’s material issues, the explanation of performance in the current year against previous targets, challenges, key risks, mitigation strategies and objectives, plans and targets for the coming year is excellent. 
 
The report is innovative, attractive and easy to read and covers most of the issues one would expect to find within the integrated report of a fashion retailer.

Judge's comments

Truworths’ report is crisp and concise, and it has wisely chosen to present abridged financial information within its integrated report. Additional information, including the annual financial statements and the Corporate Social Investment Report, are available online. The story of the business is told in an engaging manner, with a clear focus on both the risks of fashion and the risk of credit. The 16 pages that deal with the material sustainability topics of the business sensibly integrates performance against previous objectives, challenges faced in the current year and key risks, as well as objectives, plans and targets for the year ahead. Tables and other graphics are used to good effect, and the report is characterized by a lack of clutter, which improves the crispness of the report.
