Strong corporate responsibility content throughout the report

SATO's Annual Report 2015 was selected as the winner of the unlisted companies category of the Annual Reports Review of ProCom - the Finnish Association of Communication Professionals yesterday. The jury found the report clear and pleasant and was particularly impressed by the presentation of investor dialogue. The SATO Annual Report was regarded as skilfully produced and representing the absolute top among printed annual reports.

Customer Relationships and Communications Director Monica Aro from SATO:

- The theme of our Annual Report was "Everyday moments in my city". We wanted to tell the story of SATO's 75th anniversary year from the home town perspective and highlight people's feelings about their home and home town alongside company information.

- The SATO Annual Report is also a corporate responsibility report. This recognition shows that we managed to incorporate the corporate responsibility reporting requirements naturally into our annual reporting for 2015 and also encourages us to develop our reporting further.

- The Annual Report is a joint effort by many SATO employees as well as our cooperation partners, so the recognition also belongs to all those involved. Therefore our warm thanks go to all those who participated in the production of the report.

This is not the first time SATO's annual report has gained praise as the SATO Annual Reports for 2010 as well as 2012 also won the unlisted companies category of ProCom's Annual Reports Review.
