The standard of narrative reporting in the UK has made great strides since the introduction of the Strategic Report in 2013. The requirement to describe how the organisation generates and preserves value in the context of it’s environmental, employee, social, community and human rights matters brings it into close alignment with the context elements of Integrated Reporting framework set out by the IIRC. But what’s surprising to us is that very few companies have taken the next step towards integrating non-financial information in a comprehensive and coherent manner and seem to have settled for what might be described as combined reporting.
In our latest supplement we look at the challenge to make Integrated Reporting relevant by considering three aspects:
How do you decide what counts?
How do you count what counts?
Why bother making it count?
You’ll hear insights from leading businesses at various stages of the Integrated Reporting journey as well as our views of the latest regulations, and opinions driving the reporting agenda.
No matter where you are on the journey towards Integrated Reporting, we can provide you guidance on how to make it count.
