Royal BAM Group takes home the 2017 Crystal Prize. The main trophy of the Transparency Benchmark is awarded for the 8th consecutive year. Fastest climber is VION Holding N.V., while ABN AMRO grabs the award for most innovative annual report.

The Crystal Prize for societal reporting is a joint initiative of the Royal Dutch Professional Association of Accountants (NBA) and the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate. Together, they hope to foster and further improve societal reporting by businesses and organizations. The Transparency Benchmark does not imply any judgement about the  societal agenda of companies, or the way in which they deal with societal issues, dilemma’s or possible controversies surrounding their activities.     

Winner Crystal Prize: Royal BAM Group

This year’s winner of the Crystal Prize is Royal BAM Group. The sector in which BAM is operating has recently taken a heavy financial toll, which also affected BAM. The Jury appreciates BAM’s effort to firmly keep societal issues on the agenda, incorporating them in their annual report. It specifically applauds the way in which BAM invites its stakeholders to participate in discussions about the desired company profile for 2050,
matching them with the 2020 company goals.
Additionally, BAM offers clear insights on possible improvements, resulting in clear and excellent reporting by a company that dares to profile itself on the theme of sustainability.
