Progressive investors from countries leading practices in corporate reporting have confirmed that their investment processes require information on business models, strategy, and the resources on which these rely. They confirm their belief that better reporting on the key resources of a business, which Integrated Reporting can deliver, is important to their understanding of businesses and their allocation of capital. They also believe that the management processes reflected in this reporting can drive the development of more sustainable and stable businesses in the longer term.
We thank our foundation signatories for their insight in assisting with drafting the statement and for their backing.
We also ask other forward-looking organizations to support this initiative to help to consolidate the developing consensus for more effective reporting and to integrate it into their investment processes to build more sustainable and stable capital markets.
