Integrated reporting <IR> is the latest development in corporate reporting that promises to improve disclosure, while “enhancing the way organisations think, plan and report”. It aims to integrate all the key elements of a business; from aligning vision and strategies to enhancing risk management.
It goes beyond performance reporting to include reporting of value creation strategies and processes of an organisation. Companies, investors and even the public sector globally have professed benefits.

The ‘Why’, ‘What’, ‘Who’ of Integrated Reporting
- Why? <IR> aims to drive long-term thinking. Investors, notably pension funds challenged with a long investment horizon, are increasingly concerned about companies preoccupied with squeezing out short-term profits at the expense of long-term returns.
- What? An integrated report should concisely tell the story of how a company creates value over the short, medium and long term. This is only possible as a reflection of integrated thinking – integrated across functions, time horizons and capitals.
- Who? The governance and working groups of the International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC) reflects a joining of sustainability and accountancy gurus. These communities had developed reporting strands independently, resulting in disjointed development of sustainability and business strategies and/or unnecessary overlaps in annual and sustainability reports.
This course is organised by Global Compact Network Singapore,and delivered by Paia who has practical experience in helping companies produce integrated and sustainability reports since 2002.
