Founded 25 years ago, headquartered in London and with offices in Singapore, Black Sun is a leading international stakeholder communications business. We believe that in today’s fast moving and highly uncertain world, successful businesses are those able to deliver long-term value to the people around them – stakeholders. We create communications programmes designed to inspire and connect business with their corporate stakeholders and, by winning stakeholders trust and support, help to improve business performance. We do this by discovering your stakeholder needs, creating compelling and content rich communications that we deliver through print and digital channels, and continually evaluating their performance. We challenge businesses to align what they do with what they say.

Black Sun has over the years been working closely with the IIRC and other stakeholders to improve the market relevance and value of integrated thinking and reporting –  with research on the internal benefits and positive changes in external relations experienced as well as the creation, development and maintenance of ‘what good looks like’ through the <IR> Examples Database. In addition, Black Sun has worked with clients in the UK including CIMA, Coca-Cola Hellenic Bottling Company, Go-Ahead and G4S and internationally – DBS, Sime Darby and Uralkali to produce award winning integrated reports.

This long standing mix of in-depth knowledge of best practice trends and practical experience of helping clients to implement integrated thinking and reporting will enable Black Sun to create unique and practical training programmes to support organisations as they enhance the way they think, plan and report the story of their business.

“With pride, we announce that Black Sun is one of the IIRC’s first <IR> Foundation Partners. Through this appointment, Black Sun will be developing and delivering an Integrated Reporting training programme that offers a learning path to change behaviours and drive integrated thinking, decision-making and actions within organizations to help them focus on the creation of value over the short, medium and long term. Through our work with the IIRC, and our research into <IR> and trends in best practice reporting over the years, we have seen the positive impact of organisations today taking an integrated and long term approach to creating and communicating value. We believe that our <IR> training programme, delivered through the Black Sun Academy, will help strengthen the commitment of all types of organisations towards driving change and focusing on long term sustainable development.” Sallie Pilot, Research and Strategy Director, Black Sun Plc
