Case study 

Improving design and readability in Annual Reports

Conveying financial and ESG performance, as well as company values, in a clear and structured way.

The challenge

Surprisingly, the majority of those who read a company's annual report are either employees (current, potential or past) or customers*. Although they may be interested in financial performance, they also seek information on a company's culture and societal contribution. Therefore, it is crucial for an annual report to reflect a company’s values and vision for the future.

Focus groups also show that more than half of readers will skim read - looking for headlines, charts and graphics. Creating the optimum reader experience by highlighting key information serves both the audience and the messages being conveyed.

Cobepa needed to convey their financial and ESG performance, as well as their purpose through their Annual Report in a clearly organised way.
