OREANDA-NEWS. December 06, 2013. ArcelorMittal's corporate website, corporate.arcelormittal.com, has won first prize at the Investor Relations Society’s Best Practice Awards 2013, for the second consecutive year. 

ArcelorMittal’s website won the ‘best corporate website – international’ category, beating companies including the world’s largest chemical company, BASF, Gazprom Neft oil and gas company and engineering and construction company Subsea 7.

"Our corporate website was once again chosen as the best presented website in the international category," said global head of internal communications, Ewa Gebala. "This is already our third award, and it is another great recognition for the company and for the whole team that worked on the project. The design and some features of the corporate website have been replicated in the local and segment ArcelorMittal websites, which is an excellent example of how one project can bring value to the entire business."

Commenting on the award, the judges said: “ArcelorMittal has again emerged as the best presented website for the international category. Clarity and simplicity aid navigation around the business and new features add to the user experience”

The award recognises the websites of companies in four categories: international, small cap and AIM, FTSE 250 and FTSE 100. Key criteria include company details, financial information, news, shareholder information and corporate governance. The winning website should offer “a truly engaging user experience with clear messaging, easy access to key information, and a very transparent and simple structure”. 

The annual awards, which are hosted in London, recognise best practice in investor relations in both online and offline communications.

ArcelorMittal's corporate website was re-launched in February 2012 and has since won several awards including a gold award at the Stevie 2012 International Business Awards.
