The State of Integrated Reporting: A Discussion with the CEO of IIRC, Paul Druckman, & Professor of Management Practice, Harvard Business School, Bob Eccles (WEBINAR)


Three years after the launch of the International Integrated Reporting Council’s (IIRC) Pilot Programme and about a year after the release of  the International IR Framework, over 100 businesses from around the globe are on route to adopting Integrated Reporting.

Join our webinar, on September 12, 2014, from 1:00-2:00PM EST to hear from two instrumental thought leaders who will reflect on the state of the International IR Framework globally and locally.

Speakers:

  • Paul Druckman, Chief Executive Officer, International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC)
  • Bob Eccles, Professor of Management Practice, Harvard Business School; & Author, One Report: Integrated Reporting for a Sustainable Strategy


Moderator:

  • Helle Bank Jorgensen, Head, Global Compact Network Canada


From this webinar you will learn:

  • What is the International IR Framework? And what is it not?
  • What impact has the International IR Framework had on corporate reporting to date globally and locally?
  • What does the International IR Framework mean for the future of sustainability reporting and corporate reporting more broadly?
  • What is the relationship between the International IR Framework and the Form 10-K?
  • What is the relationship between the International IR Framework and other reporting guidelines and frameworks?

 

What is the International IR Framework?

Integrated Reporting is a process founded on integrated thinking that results in a periodic integrated report by an organization about value creation over time and related communications regarding aspects of value creation. An integrated report is a concise communication about how an organization’s strategy, governance, performance and prospects, in the context of its external environment, lead to the creation of value in the short, medium and long term.

  IR aims to:

  • Improve the quality of information available to providers of financial capital
  • Promote a more cohesive and efficient approach to corporate reporting
  • Enhance accountability and stewardship for the broad base of capitals (financial, manufactured, intellectual, human, social and relationship, and natural)
  • Support integrated thinking, decision-making and actions that focus on the creation of value over the short, medium and long term
