After a three-month global consultation led by the International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC) we are delighted to see the release International Integrated Reporting (<IR>) Framework! It can be found here! The discussion document elicited over 350 responses from around the world, and will be used to assist with the adoption of <IR> globally. <IR> is currently being trialed in 25 countries around the world, with PepsiCo recently becoming the largest global company to so sign up. New Zealand’s own NZ Post is now a part of the Pilot Programme Business Network making them the first New Zealand company to take part! You can view NZ Post’s 2013 Integrated report here. Their key analytic’s can be found on the front page of their annual report – see below.

In June we were lucky enough to have lunch with Professor Mervyn King, the Chair of the IIRC, and in July we made a submission on the IIRC’s discussion document.  To learn more about <IR> check out the links above and the <IR> website.

Integrated reporting is playing a role in meeting the world’s two great challenges, Financial stability and sustainability. Paul Druckman, Chief Executive Officer, International Integrated Reporting Council.Postgraohic
