International <IR> Framework

International IR Framework CoverThe International Integrated Reporting Framework’s focus on value creation, and the ‘capitals’ used and affected by business to create value over time, contributes to a more financially stable global.

<IR> applies principles and concepts that are focused on bringing greater cohesion and efficiency to the reporting process, and adopting ‘integrated thinking’ as a way of breaking down internal silos and reducing duplication. It improves the quality of information available to providers of financial capital to enable a more efficient and productive allocation of capital.

The Framework was released following extensive consultation and testing by businesses and investors in all regions of the world, including the 140 businesses and investors from 26 countries that participate in the IIRC Pilot Programme. The purpose of the Framework is to establish Guiding Principles and Content Elements that govern the overall content of an integrated report, and to explain the fundamental concepts that underpin them.
