In the current changing context and to promote the changes needed towards a sustainable model, business executives have to be able to think and manage differently than they have done so far. This new way of thinking is called by many “integrated thinking”. The integrated way of thinking includes, among other elements, a clear understanding of the company’s business model and the value created or destroyed around it, the financial and extra-financial impacts and risks involved and the aspects to be managed and reported in order to express this understanding.
The Integrated Reporting <IR> Framework
The International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC) is a global coalition of regulators, investors, companies, standard setters, the accounting profession and NGOs. Key players in IIRC include the International Federation of Accountants, IFRS Foundation (International Financial Reporting Standards) and Global Reporting Initiative (GRI). IIRC released its ‘International Integrated Reporting <IR> Framework’ (<IR> Framework) in 2013. Based on the idea of “integrated thinking”, the <IR> Framework seeks to explain the fundamental concepts, principles and content requirements underlying an ‘integrated report’, which is considered a needed next step in the evolution of corporate reporting.
Who is the training for?
This training is relevant to managers with an interest in integrated reporting, in departments such as communication, finance, sustainability or investor relations.
