Integrated reporting which is among the most topical subjects in
today's global corporate world is a process that results in
communication, most visibly a periodic "integrated report", about value
creation over time.
An integrated report is a concise communication about how an
organization's strategy, governance, performance and prospects lead to
the creation of value over the short, medium and long term, including
the integrated representation of a company's performance in terms of
both financial and other value relevant information. Integrated
Reporting provides greater context for performance data, clarifies how
value relevant information fits into operations or a business, and may
help embed long-termism into company decision making.
