Smart Media The Annual Report Company
Smart Media – The Annual Report Company is a global annual report consultancy with a team of over fifty top professionals and is one of the very few companies in the world to specialize exclusively in annual reports. Smart Media takes on the entire responsibility from concept, design, writing, photography and pre-press to printing and even the online HTML version.
In 2008, we encouraged our first client to publish their carbon footprint in their annual report. Since then we have been encouraging and helping many clients to calculate and publish their carbon footprints as well as helping devise strategies to reduce their footprint. Creating such awareness and action among our wide base of clients we feel is our single largest contribution to the environment.
In 2009, we embarked on a project to become carbon neutral by 2011. Our strategy was to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions as much as possible and to offset the rest thereafter. Our product, the printed version of the Annual Report, is now Carbon Neutral. In addition to instituting several initiatives to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions, we are now offsetting the emissions produced in the process of writing, designing, photography, production, project management, usage of paper, printing and transportation by purchasing verified carbon offsets.
"Our philosophy when in comes to partnerships is “the best or not at all.” Thus we shopped around and did a lot of research to identify the best partner in the world for the subject. We identified Carbonfund.org as an independent foundation having a great track record and credibility. We felt that they were the ideal partner to take our environmental mission forward. They have the experience and expertise to help clients in almost any sector in any part of the world. Thus, their capabilities matched our requirements as well as those of our wide spectrum of clients." - Dr. Vijith Kannangara, Chairman
