When? Advocate for global adoption

“Integrated Reporting can bring additional information, in
particular about the longer-term costs of climate change, to
feed into markets and inform decision-making and
policy-formulation by institutions. If achieved, it will lead to
better-informed and more sustainable long-term investment,
for the benefit of society.”
Mark Carney, Governor of the Bank of England

The IIRC is a global coalition with high-profile council members and ambassadors leading the movement for integrated reporting adoption. There are now over 1,750 participants in <IR> Networks worldwide, with, for example, over 300 businesses currently practicing integrated reporting in Japan alone. More than 1,500 businesses globally are using it to communicate with their investors and there is increasing interest in integrated reporting by pioneers in the public sector.

Integrated reporting is on the agenda of international bodies, for example the B20 and IOSCO are both taking an interest in integrated reporting as part of the answer to market challenges worldwide. Regulators in countries such as Japan, India and the UK are among those taking a greater interest in integrated reporting as a route towards achieving more cohesive reporting and promoting financial stability, with the European Commission labeling integrated reporting as ‘a step-ahead’.

The IIRC works with a wide range of partners and supporters to continue to build on this momentum. This section offers tools and updates to help you advocate for integrated reporting in your networks. It also provides insight and knowledge about how integrated reporting is being adopted worldwide, and its fit with wider global policy movements, so that you are always up to date with the latest developments.
