ABN AMRO published its first Integrated Annual Report in 2015. Our financial results reflect only one aspect of our business; integrated reporting allows us to present the non-financial value we create in a structured, transparent manner. Integrated thinking and reporting is a relatively new topic for our company. At this point, we are working hard to increase awareness and understanding of integrated reporting within the organization. We have started by adopting integrated reporting as a way to encourage integrated thinking. Producing an integrated report also helps us to discover what matters most to our stakeholders and to identify what we need to improve in order to meet their needs and create long-term value for all our stakeholders.
Tjeerd Krumpelman, Head of Business Advisory, Reporting & Stakeholder Management at ABN AMRO:
“At ABN AMRO, we consider financial results and non-financial value to be equally important. I have found that the process of creating an Annual Report works like a management tool: it raises questions, introduces discipline, and gives us insight into the non-financial value we have created in the previous year and what steps we need to take in order to keep creating sustainable value for all our stakeholders. Our integrated reporting helps make this value transparent.”
