Rosenbauer International wins two-fold at the FOX FINANCE 2020 Awards

  • Annual report takes home gold, sustainability report receives silver 
  • Lively storytelling and use of print and online media win over the jury

Rosenbauer International took home gold and silver in the “Industry, technology and production” category at the FOX FINANCE 2020 Awards. Gold went to the 2019 annual report, and the 2019 sustainability report was awarded silver. The two Rosenbauer reports were designed by berichtsmanufaktur in Hamburg.

Under the title, “Everything for this moment,” the annual report brings together the work of Rosenbauer and the fire departments. They are united by their goal to create the best possible conditions for vehicles to be deployed safely and well. The sustainability report takes the annual report’s main theme further, with the title “The time is now”. This reflects the way Rosenbauer takes responsibility for its products, and how the company is grasping every opportunity to continually improve its performance – thus pursuing sustainable development. This involves packaging company information into lively storytelling and bringing this alive for all target groups.

Rosenbauer International is also taking the next step into the digital world with its reporting. A new microsite shows readers the key articles from the annual report as well as a summary of the sustainability report in optimized HTML format. Online communication and mobile devices are an increasingly important area of focus, and so the reports are designed to be media-friendly. 

The FOX FINANCE jurors from the practical, scientific and educational sectors were impressed by this. After holding detailed consultations over several weeks, the experts assessed the submitted reports against a comprehensive list of criteria. Factors such as the transparency and credibility of the reported facts and figures, and the distribution of the publications were included in the overall evaluation.
