The Importance of Integrated Reporting Standards
08 March, 2013 | (01 hr)
Integrated reporting standards aim to give a view of the organization by putting its performance and strategy in the context of its relevant social and environmental issues. Importantly, integrated reporting includes information to allow shareholders to make a more informed assessment of the future of a company. United Technologies Corporation, American Electric Power, Southwest Airlines, Clorox, Germany’s BASF, Denmark’s Novo Nordisk, Brazil’s Natura and the Netherlands’ Philips have voluntarily started this practice. Adopting this practice can have a strong influence on corporate behavior and ethics.
