Integrated reporting: connecting fi nancial and non-fi nancial information to your overall business model

Integrated reporting: connecting fi nancial and non-fi nancial information to your overall business model



Integrated reporting requires companywide integrated thinking and strategy.

By connecting material financial and non-financial information, business model, governance, strategy, and opportunities and risks, integrated reporting unifies a company’s:

  • Business practices
  • Tangible and intangible assets
  • Financial and non-financial capital risks
  • Environmental, social and economic information

Through coherent and concise communication, an integrated report can highlight the information that is most pertinent to the direct creation and preservation of value. This can help a company distinguish itself to investors and other stakeholders, directly enhancing short-, medium- and long-term value.

Integrated reporting should do more than window dress. The “integrated thinking” required by this approach also creates a strong network of communication, collaboration and process efficiencies.
