Xstrata is new face on short list

December 2006

Mining group Xstrata has been short-listed for the UK Sustainability Reporting Awards, to be announced next March.

Xstrata, a Switzerland-based company listed on the London Stock Exchange and operating in 18 countries, is the one large company newcomer on the short list of 15, which is dominated by businesses that have featured prominently in the awards in recent years.

However, four small and medium-sized enterprises have made the short list this year - a figure not matched since 2003. They are FRC Group (furniture recycling), Shared Interest Society (fair trade investment), Traidcraft (fair trade) and Workspace Group (property).

The other short-listed companies are Anglo American, BHP Billiton, BP, BT, Centrica, Co-operative Financial Services, Guardian Newspapers, Shell International, Thames Water Utilities and Vodafone. The awards are run by the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants.

The UK regional brewer Shepherd Neame is among nine companies short-listed in the CSR category of the inaugural European Business Awards, run by the UK-based communications company Quest Media with The Wall Street Journal Europe. Winners will be announced in Brussels in January.
