Kurssin kuvaus

Reporting is developing from pure monetary unit financial measurement and analysis to cover all areas of corporate involvement, covering human, social, environmental, production, intellectual and natural impacts of the company. There are a number of standards and metrics developed for various areas, which may create a collection of seemingly unrelated reports. International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC) is attempting create a single framework to incorporate all relevant reporting.

IIRC describes Integrated Reporting, or <IR> this way: “<IR> is an evolution of corporate reporting, with a focus on conciseness, strategic relevance and future orientation. As well as improving the quality of information contained in the final report, <IR> makes the reporting process itself more productive, resulting in tangible benefits. <IR> requires and brings about integrated thinking, enabling a better understanding of the factors that materially affect an organization’s ability to create value over time. It can lead to behavioral changes and improvement in performance throughout an organization.”

Reporting development also has high impact on risk oversight work of Internal Auditors.
