How is the IIRC funded?

The IIRC is a global non-profit organization that relies on donations and contributions from a range of sources to ensure we can continue to build momentum towards the global adoption of integrated reporting. We are thankful to all our partners that support the work of the IIRC and enable us to bring the benefits of integrated reporting to markets around the world. If you are interested in supporting our work or in getting involved then please contact us on


There are four key funding streams:

  • Council: Annual contributions from IIRC Council member organizations
  • <IR> Network: Annual contributions by participants in our networks
  • Grants & other contributions: Grants and other voluntary contributions
  • Training and events: Income from the <IR> Training Programme and IIRC Conferences

We benefit from significant in-kind contributions, principally from our Council members, which are not reflected in our accounts. They include:

  • Seconded staff: this amounted to 5.6 full-time equivalent staff members in 2017 (2016: 7.8), accounting for 29% of our total staffing.
  • London office premises: for our London-based team members (2017: 10 full-time)
