The <IR> Business Network

Join the <IR> Business Network today to innovate alongside over 1,750 participants internationally, enabling you to innovate with other like-minded individuals to advance your approach to integrated reporting.

You can benefit from six years of learning, the most advanced technical expertise in the world and have peer-to-peer contact with reporting practitioners who have been adopting integrated reporting themselves.

The <IR> Business Network is the vehicle for companies that want to improve the quality of their corporate reporting.

Why join the <IR> Business Network?

Perhaps you want to understand how to articulate value creation.

Perhaps you are attempting to comply with new reporting requirements to integrate non-financial information within your mainstream annual reporting.

Perhaps you are grappling with how to explain the value of your intangibles – the human, social and intellectual value that is so integral to your strategy.

Whether you want to be a leader, or learn from leaders, the <IR> Business Network will provide you with a platform to advance your corporate reporting journey.

We hold regular webinars with companies from over 30 countries in the world to exchange best practice, and tackle head on the practical challenges faced by businesses – issues like compliance, materiality, and how to achieve completeness and conciseness.

Our special interest groups on financial institutions, strategy and integrated thinking, and hidden capitals provide specialism for those companies wanting more in depth engagement.

Through being a part of the 2020 <IR> Business Network:

  • You will receive a confidential critique of your current annual report, with input from investors, to help guide you on your journey towards improved corporate reporting
  • Be given the tools – including access to key resources, webinars and training – to have the confidence to make change internally
  • Accessing crucial investor insights
  • Dialogue with investors
  • Engaging with the <IR> Academic Network
  • Networking with peers
  • Sharing experiences and leading practice
  • Participating in the development of technical guidance
  • Achieve recognition and visibility for being a leader in corporate reporting internationally – taking a leading role on the path towards sustainable development
  • The IIRC will profile your company at IIRC events, online and in the media, where appropriate.

With the evidence showing that integrated reporting leads to a lower cost of capital, higher share price performance and a more-long term shareholder base, it is clear that integrated reporting can help make our planet a better place.
