IIRC Council

  • Appointed by the Board, acting in consultation with the Governance and Nominations Committee.
  • Is the primary, though not exclusive, source of advice, expertise, experience, resources and support required for achievement of the IIRC’s purpose.
  • Comprises senior executive level designates from our coalition organizations, expressing the coalition’s broad market view and collective voice – their breadth of views, depth of experience and commitment to integrated reporting continue to be instrumental to our strategy implementation.

Board of Directors

  • Appointed by and accountable to the Governance and Nominations Committee, responsible for the running of the Operating Company and its activities. All Directors aside from the CEO participate on an individual, non-remunerated and non-executive basis.
  • Monitors performance and financial and risk management, appoints new Council members, gives direction to the CEO and the IIRC team on strategic matters.
  • The Board comprises leaders whose individual backgrounds and combined experience reflect our broad constituency base. The skills and diversity of Board members, lend healthy debate, guidance and discipline to such activities as strategic development and risk management.
  • The Board has the authority to establish Board sub-committees to address certain matters as and when required and report back to the Board. This allows us to make use of the skills, diversity and experience of the Board without creating an ongoing governance burden of permanent sub-committees.
  • Board’s interaction with Council:
    • Directors attend Council meetings which are timed to coincide with in-person Board meetings and the Chair of Council is invited to attend Board meetings, the discussions help inform Council meeting agendas.
    • The Board’s key focus areas and deliberations are shared with Council members during Council meetings and this engagement also provides Council members with an opportunity to engage with Directors directly. Through these interactions both bodies gain valuable insights and receive mutual input into the priorities for strategic and operational development of the IIRC.

CEO and IIRC Team

  • Coordinate the activities of the IIRC and report to the Board.
  • These activities and interactions are guided by our brand values:
    be market-led, communicate with clarity, facilitate change and promote cohesion.
  • Four organizational values shape how we do what we do and ensure we work cohesively and collaboratively: respect, attitude, professionalism and truth.
  • Team members can be seen here.
