How valuable is Integrated Reporting? Insights from best practice companies

Oct 17, 2016

In October 2016, the Center for Corporate Reporting (CCR) and the University of Leipzig, Germany released the first results of their study "How valuable is Integrated Reporting? – Insights from best practice companies," which was a joint research project on the benefits and challenges of the implementation of integrated reporting.

Arguments for and against the implementation of integrated reporting as a management approach include better understanding of value creation, improved risk management and a more holistic view of the entire company as well as embedding integrated thinking in to the corporate strategy and the support of management against increased costs and work effort, new potential risks, and (currently) a lack of vision and leadership skills. Arguments for and against the implementation of integrated reporting as a reporting format include a more efficient reporting process and step-by-step adjusted reporting processes and experiences against a long implementation process before the initial report is published, unclear division of roles and responsibilities, and limited resources and internal resistance to change.

Review the key results on the CCR's website.
