The evolution of Reporting…


…Integrated Reporting – the Future


Coordinated, International Action Needed


• Reporting has a fundamental impact on decision-making

• Critical interdependencies need to be made clear

• A clear, concise picture of performance, impacts and interdependencies, to:

– drive innovation

– be focused on communication and not just on compliance

– support resource allocation decisions consistent with sustained value creation and with long term economic stability

• Build on the many positive developments to date

• Bring together divergent strands of reporting


Aims of the Framework

• Support the development of reporting over the coming decades

– Reporting organizations – consistency of content and approach

– Policy makers and regulators – consistent reporting regimes within and across jurisdictions

– Standard-setters – focal point for harmonization

• Initial proposals in Discussion Paper – interim guidance to be on the IIRC website

• Initial focus – larger companies and the needs of their investors


What Will it Mean for Me?

• Benefits and challenges


Future Direction

• Continue developing the International Integrated Reporting


– draw on Pilot Programme experiences

– Exposure Draft in 2012

• Work with others on measurement and reporting relevant to

Integrated Reporting

• Explore with regulators etc opportunities to harmonize reporting requirements within and across jurisdictions

• Conduct regional roundtables and other engagement and communications activities

• Public consultation regarding ongoing governance of

Integrated Reporting

Resources and relationships or “capitals”

Guiding Principles

Strategic focus: An Integrated Report provides insight into the organization’s strategic objectives, and how those objectives relate to its ability to create and sustain value over time and the resources and relationships on which the organization depends.

Connectivity of information: An Integrated Report shows the connections between the different components of the organization’s business model, external factors that affect the organization, and the various resources and relationships on which the organization and its overall performance depend.

Future orientation: An Integrated Report includes management’s expectations about the future, as well as other information to help report users understand and assess the organization’s prospects and the uncertainties it faces.

Responsiveness and stakeholder inclusiveness: An Integrated Report provides insight into the organization’s relationships with its key stakeholders and how and to what extent the organization understands, takes into account and responds to their needs.

Conciseness, reliability and materiality: An Integrated Report provides concise, reliable information that is material to assessing the organization’s ability to create and sustain value in the short, medium and long term.

Strategic objectives and strategies to achieve those objectives: Where does the organization want to go and how is it going to get there?

Governance and remuneration: What is the organization’s governance structure, and how does governance support the strategic objectives of the organization and relate to the organization’s approach to remuneration?

Performance: How has the organization performed against its strategic objectives and related strategies?

Future outlook: What opportunities, challenges and uncertainties is the organization likely to encounter in achieving its strategic objectives and what are the resulting implications for its strategies and future performance?
