We have developed a number of programmes and resources in place to help implement integrated reporting. For example, the <IR> Business Network bring together trailblazing organizations that are adopting the principles and practices of integrated reporting, in order to share experiences with peers, access expert and investor insights, and explore the benefits and challenges that come with being at the forefront of a new reporting movement.
To help you with the report itself, the International <IR> Framework provides guidance on the practicalities of producing an integrated report. It establishes the Guiding Principles and Content Elements that govern the overall content of an integrated report, and explains the fundamental concepts that underpin them. The Framework was developed after extensive consultation with businesses and investors, and guided by the learning of 140 participants from 26 countries in our Pilot Programme.
With a network of other adopters to learn from and a framework in place to shape your own reporting, the journey towards integrated reporting is not one taken alone. The momentum towards global adoption is building, and the bank of examples to support the case for integrated reporting is growing, showing how companies are approaching integrated reporting across the world. Guidance is also emerging from a number of organizations, offering practical tips and support for adopting integrated reporting.
Networks ensure recognition for businesses that support the vision and mission of integrated reporting and contribute to leading practice in reporting. They help organizations that want to embrace integrated reporting, with opportunities to learn from peers and experts, and the chance to share experiences.
