The Good Report Ranking of the Best Campaigns for Social and Environmental Responsibility
WARC, in collaboration with ACT Responsible, has released The Good Report, a ranking of the world’s best uses of creative communications to promote sustainability and social responsibility to raise awareness of key social and environmental issues.
The Good Report rankings are produced by combining the results of the recently released WARC Creative 100, with ACT’s responsible initiatives: Great Ads for Good Exhibition, Care Awards, One Minute of Responsibility TV show, Tributes (public vote) and the Good Ad Gallery. There are no complicated criteria or categories, just great work for Good.
A total of 1,259 campaigns produced by 796 agencies for 1,000 advertisers (non-profit, public sector and commercial brands) across 80 markets were evaluated for this latest Good Report.
Of the top 40 campaigns featured in The Good Report 2021, 21 are for nonprofits, 15 for commercial brands (including two produced in collaboration with nonprofits), and four for public sectors. A total of 45 agencies (34 networked and 11 independent) in 21 markets are represented.
The top 25 agencies are made up of four independent agencies and 21 network agencies covering a total of 16 markets. Of the top 20 networks, three are independent and 17 belong to holding companies. The top ten brands include six nonprofits and four for-profits.
