DIMO, as a company that has been producing Integrated Annual Reports for 9 years, understands the need for continuous improvements in its integrated annual report. With the rapid changes in the environment, the manner you create value and material aspects for your value creation changes and the same change should reflect in your integrated annual report. That is why this year DIMO decided to take a different and a more integrated approach, eliminating silos to communicate its value creation ability to its financial capital providers and other stakeholders. The report discusses DIMOs value creation story under three sections.
With this new restructuring and giving materiality the due consideration, the company was able to produce an integrated annual report which is concise, easy to read and provide a complete picture of the organisations value creation ability. This has provided the platform to win aforesaid awards.
