About the course

As we emerge from the pandemic, and organisations plan for a more sustainable future, Integrated Reporting, with its focus on the inter-connectivity of strategy, corporate objectives, performance measurement, risk assessment, resource allocation and governance, provides the perfect framework for building relationships with all stakeholders. More and more organisations are doing it and soon an Integrated Report could be an expected part of the information provided to stakeholders.

This course gives you a clear overview of the Integrated Reporting Framework, and practical advice on its application, by introducing you to the seven guiding principles and content elements. It will enhance your understanding of this topical issue in corporate reporting, and will enable you to develop an action plan for implementing the framework as well as providing appropriate advice to your business or clients.
