Practice Aid: helping you navigate International <IR> Framework requirements

Organizations around the world use the International <IR> Framework, with its set of Guiding Principles and Content Elements, to develop an effective integrated report that communicates their value creation story.

The <IR> Framework takes a principles-based approach that ensures it is usable by organizations of any size and in any sector. It also includes a small number of requirements that are to be applied before an integrated report can be said to be in accordance with the <IR> Framework.

As part of its ongoing efforts to support report preparers as they adopt and advance integrated reporting in their organization, the IIRC has published a Practice Aid, to remind report preparers of these requirements.


At the start of 2019, the IIRC published details of the <IR> Business Network Programme for 2019. The network continues to be the best place globally for businesses to innovate, discuss and advance their reporting.

The <IR> Business Network hold regular webinars to exchange best practice and tackle head-on the practical implementation challenges faced by businesses. Upcoming webinars include:

  • How to communicate effectively on integrated reporting with the Board (28 February 2019)
  • Value Creation (26 March 2019)
  • Business model reporting (4 June 2019).

The IIRC’s Integrated Thinking & Strategy special interest group, now with 46 participants from 17 countries, will be holding its next in-person meeting in London on May 15 2019, to coincide with the IIRC Conference 2019.  The meeting, which will explore best practices around integrated thinking, is an all-day meeting for participants in the group, but we also welcome <IR> Business Network participants who are keen to find out more about integrated thinking.
If you would like to participate in the <IR> Business Network please contact Maria Trullenque on: [email protected]


Mainstream support for more than financial reporting


Following ever increasing interest in more than financial information by investors, the International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO) has published a statement setting out the importance of disclosing this information, which is material to investors’ decisions.

The paper also recognizes the new focus by business on broader value creation, stating, “When ESG matters are considered to be material, issuers should disclose the impact or potential impact on their financial performance and value creation.”
