King IV closes the circle of integrated reporting in South Africa

Nov 08, 2016

In November 2016, the "King IV Report on Corporate Governance for South Africa 2016" (King IV) has been released. King IV closes the circle of integrated reporting that was started with the release of King III in September 2009.

King III called on organizations to prepare an integrated report each year which would reflect the appreciation that strategy, risk, performance and sustainability are inseparable. This resulted in the founding of the Integrated Reporting Committee (IRC) of South Africa to develop a framework for an integrated report. This framework later fed into the development of the International Framework released by the International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC) in 2013. The release of King IV now closes the circle as it references the International Framework underpinned by the same thinking and terminology. The King IV Report can be accessed here.
