The annual Good Report has been released that looks at and ranks the world’s best use of creative communications to promote sustainability and social responsibility to raise awareness of major social and environmental issues.

It is created in collaboration between ACT Responsible, the international non-profit association and largest global source of the world’s best ads on social and environmental issues, and The Gunn Report, the global index of creative excellence in advertising.

A total of 702 campaigns produced by 461 agencies for 608 advertisers from 71 countries were evaluated for this latest Good Report. The ranking is created by combining the industry’s recognition with the performance measured by The Gunn Report, as well as the promotional effort behind the campaigns and the general public’s recognition from public votes organised by ACT Responsible.

The Good Report 2016 is made-up of 40 campaigns, of which 24 are for NGO’s, institutions and foundations and 16 are for commercial corporations. The top 25 Agencies are made up of four independents and 21 networked agencies. In the top 20 Networks list there are three independent networks and 17 networks owned by holding companies; and the top 10 Advertisers include six NGO’s/Institutions and four for-profit companies.

Here are the top five campaigns promoting good causes for 2016:
