<IR> and the reporting landscape

There is a recognised need to promote financial stability and sustainable development, with corporate behaviour and investment decisions aligned to the aim of long-term value creation. This has to be reflected by the methods of reporting embedded in everyday business practice.

<IR> is a strategic response to the need for sustainable capital markets, where financial and other streams of reporting combine to tell a concise communication about value over time, covering strategy, governance, performance and prospects.

The global momentum of <IR> will see corporate reporting reform and regulation focused on these goals of long-term value creation, which will encourage effective management and disclosure.
