Framework IR - Integrated Reporting
NEXT DATES: 6, 7 & 9 December | ONLINE

Context:

The way companies communicate their performance to investors is changing. The challenge of integrating economic-financial performance with non-financial performance, including intangible and socio-environmental issues, is gaining space for discussion and is proving capable of generating synergies, bringing together areas that today work in isolation (e.g. Finance and Sustainability). Integrated Reporting is contributing decisively to improve the way organizations think, plan and report the rationale of their business. The Integrated Reporting framework proposed by the International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC) divides business aspects into six capitals: Financial, Manufacturing, Human, Intellectual, Natural, Social and Relationship. This arrangement has proven to promote an integrated view of the business, helping companies to have a clear vision of their value proposition, intended development, impacts generated and interdependencies between capitals.

Main Goals

The training will enable analysis and discussion of the latest reporting trends, helping participants answer the following questions:

  • What does integrated thinking and reporting consist of? What is its importance?
  • What does the IIRC framework <IR> consist of and what are its implications for current reporting practices?
  • How can the <IR> framework be aligned with the GRI Standards, based on the shared principle of materiality?
  • How can organizations following the GRI Standards adopt a more integrated approach and how can the <IR> framework help in this process?
  • How can the IIRC and GRI benchmarks be used together to promote better sustainability management and reporting?
