“Integrated Reporting” (called <IR> for short) is a tool that enables the corporation to report on its financial as well as on the environmental, social, and governance aspects of its business. It is a powerful instrument to enhance governance, transparency, and accountability in the corporate and public sectors. Professor Robert Eccles who popularized the concept of Integrated Reoporting through his award-winning book, One Report, described the evolution of the concept of Integrated Reporting and its current stage as well as the public policy implications of <IR> especially in terms of environment sustainability.
