Awarded every year by leading Dutch newspaper Het Financieele Dagblad, the Sijthoff prize is the highest recognition for financial reporting excellence in the Netherlands. It judges areas such as clarity of writing, transparency of information about the company, its strategy, corporate governance and corporate social responsibility.
“I’m thrilled that TenneT has won this prestigious prize. This is an important recognition of the outstanding work by our team. It was the third time we had been nominated, so it’s wonderful to win at last.
Congratulations to everyone involved, including our fellow nominees,’’ says Otto Jager, TenneT’s chief financial officer.
"As we are creating a brighter energy future for the benefit of everyone in Germany and the Netherlands, we want to tell our story as clearly as possible. We are proud to be able to regularly report about our people, our assets and our operations in a transparent way. Together we lighten the way ahead to a sustainable energy system.”
TenneT was one of three nominees in the non-listed companies category, along with NS and Triodos. Work has already begun on its 2020 Integrated Annual Report, which will be published in March 2021.
