IIRC showcases the business and investor journey towards Integrated Reporting
London (September 26th ) The International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC) has marked the first anniversary of the launch of its Pilot Programme by holding a major international conference and publishing a Yearbook which showcases the business and investor journey towards Integrated Reporting.
The Pilot Programme, comprising over 80 organizations and 25 investors from around the globe, is designed to test the principles, content, and practical application of Integrated Reporting <IR> and develop the International <IR> Framework. The Pilot Programme is the IIRC’s innovation hub, encouraging and facilitating an evolution in corporate reporting that will lead to businesses adopting <IR>, supported by institutional investors, regulators and standard setters.
Speaking at the IIRC’s Pilot Programme conference hosted by KPMG in Amsterdam, IIRC CEO Paul Druckman said:
‘We call the Pilot Programme our “innovation hub” – made up of people who want to push the boundaries just a little bit further; to challenge, or at least question, orthodox thinking; and to acknowledge the importance of reporting to the way our organizations think and behave.’
The Pilot Programme 2012 Yearbook: Capturing the Experiences of Global Businesses and Investors, profiles the journey many businesses have embarked upon towards communicating coherent, value-relevant information to investors and other stakeholders and describes the progress achieved through shared experiences, lessons learned, and best practices. The Yearbook identifies emerging themes and practices, focusing on technical topics currently under examination, such as business model, capitals, connectivity, materiality, and value.
