How? Practical advice and tools

“Integrated Reporting reflects how our company thinks and
does business. This approach allows us to discuss material
issues facing our business and communities and show how
we create value, for shareholders and for society as a whole.”
Dimitris Lois, CEO, Coca-Cola HBC

We have developed a number of programmes and resources in place to help implement <IR>. For example, <IR> networks bring together trailblazing organizations that are adopting the principles and practices of <IR>, in order to share experiences with peers, access expert and investor insights, and explore the benefits and challenges that come with being at the forefront of a new reporting movement.

To help you with the report itself, the International <IR> Framework provides guidance on the practicalities of producing an integrated report. It establishes the Guiding Principles and Content Elements that govern the overall content of an integrated report, and explains the fundamental concepts that underpin them. The Framework was developed after extensive consultation with businesses and investors, and guided by the learning of 140 participants from 26 countries in the IIRC Pilot Programme.

With a network of other adopters to learn from and a framework in place to shape your own reporting, the journey towards <IR> is not one taken alone. The momentum towards global adoption is building, and the bank of examples to support the case for <IR> is growing, showing how companies are approaching <IR> across the world. Guidance is also emerging from a number of organizations, offering practical tips and support for adopting <IR>.
