<IR> Report Critique Project

Every year, the IIRC reviews the annual reports of our global <IR> Network participants. A panel of specialists provide analysis of the annual reports, benchmarking them against the International <IR> Framework. Next, a panel of investors shares high level feedback on whether the report meets their information needs as providers of financial capital. All feedback is then shared confidentially with individual participants.

The feedback received is highly valued by our <IR> Network participants, with the project helping to:

  • Improve implementation of the International <IR> Framework through a better understanding of where they are on the integrated reporting journey and where there are opportunities for improvement
  • Highlight leading practice to support and inspire other organizations globally to use the <IR> Framework, leading to progressive and effective reporting
  • Provide insights into emerging market trends in corporate reporting. The IIRC partners with ACCA, who collate the findings of these reviews to produce a wider insights report.

The IIRC would like to thank the organizations who are involved in our review panels, helping us to provide tailored feedback to the <IR> Network participants:


Standard Life, Regnan, Old Mutual Investment Group, Allianz GI, WHEB, Norges Bank Investment Management, SBIMF, Credit Suisse Holt, Corporate Reporting Users Forum (CRUF) and Generali Investment.
