The integrated reporting landscape

There is a recognized need to promote financial stability and sustainable development, with corporate behaviour and investment decisions aligned to the aim of long-term value creation. This has to be reflected by the methods of reporting embedded in everyday business practice.

Integrated reporting is a strategic response to the need for sustainable capital markets, where financial and other streams of reporting combine to tell a concise communication about value over time, covering strategy, governance, performance and prospects.

The global momentum of integrated reporting will see corporate reporting reform and regulation focused on these goals of long-term value creation, which will encourage effective management and disclosure.
