Consultation period of the International <IR> Framework launched today. Stakeholders are invited to submit their thoughts and help shape the future
London, April 16 2013 – Today the International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC) launches a 90 day consultation period of the International <IR> Framework, a strategic tool for businesses as they create integrated reports. During this time the IIRC is calling on stakeholders to read, critique and challenge the Framework feeding back their thoughts through their website, http://www.theiirc.org/consultationdraft2013/
To celebrate the start of this 90 day period the IIRC has organized launch events in 10 of the world’s largest markets, including Australia, Hong Kong, Japan, China, South Africa, Germany, UK, Canada, USA and Brazil. The Consultation Draft of the International <IR> Framework will be released in English with translations in French, Spanish, Chinese, Russian, Japanese, Portuguese and Arabic following shortly.
The IIRC is calling on organizations to leverage their networks and ensure that as many stakeholders as possible read and review the Framework in order to ensure it is fit for purpose in order to help businesses communicate value in the 21st century.
To date, the IIRC Pilot Program, with more than 85 world-renowned businesses and 30 investors has been driving forward the development of the Framework by feeding back their experiences to the IIRC while on the road to <IR>. The IIRC is confident that this is a powerful tool to use globally to enable providers of financial capital to gain a clear, concise insight into how businesses create value over the short, medium and long terms. This is your invitation to contribute to this consultation period in order to help shape the future of corporate reporting.
