Integrated Reporting can be undertaken separately from sustainability reporting using the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Standards, or together with the standards.
The difference between integrated reporting and sustainability reporting is the specific focus on value creation using the Integrated Reporting <IR> framework.
Stakeholders that provide financial capital to your organisation may want to see how you create value for your organisation and other stakeholders in the short, medium and longer term.
An integrated report will help to define the value that you create in terms of the following 'capitals': financial, manufactured, intellectual, human, social and relationship and natural capital.
Integrated reporting shows that you understand the interdependencies and relationships in your organisation that create value.
What’s your value creation story?
This is how we can help:
Using the International Integrated Reporting Council's (IIRC) reporting framework, we can write your integrated report for you and map your other reporting to accommodate the framework. We can provide advisory services around using the framework if you’d like to write it yourself.
We can help you plan how to approach your integrated report, including: exploring the applicability of the six <IR> capitals, reviewing the internal and external influences of your organisation and your business model, stakeholder engagement, materiality assessment, strategy and resource allocation, risk and opportunities analysis, and developing a strategic focus for the short, medium and long term.
We can assist with incorporating integrated reporting into your overall business strategy.
We can review your organisational communications to facilitate a true integrated reporting approach.
An objective review of your report to determine adherence to the <IR> framework. Pre-publication and post-publication reviews are available.
