2024 ACT Good Report: Recognising leading social and environmental responsibility campaigns

The ACT Good Report stands as a distinctive ranking, spotlighting global endeavors that harness creative communications to advance sustainability, social responsibility, and amplify awareness of critical environmental and social issues. Celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, it continues to champion impactful initiatives.

Great work

The Good Report is compiled by ACT Responsible, the international non-profit association and largest source of the world’s best social and environmental campaigns, in collaboration with Warc, the global marketing insights company, and publisher of the Warc Rankings.

The ACT Good ranking is calculated by combining the performance of campaigns across various initiatives of the ACT Responsible Programme (such as the ACT Exhibition, the ACT Care Awards, One Minute of Responsibility, The ACT Tributes …), with the results of the recently published Warc Creative 100, the global benchmark for creative excellence. There are no complicated criteria or categories, just great work for Good.
