Integrated Thinking: A Pillar for Integrated Reporting

Mats Olsson | July 28, 2017 |

Mats Olsson, IFAC Small and Medium Practices Committee Deputy Chair, discusses how integrated thinking as an important aspect of integrated reporting helps businesses understand the value they are creating—financial value as well as value for society and employees. If businesses can identify these values and use a holistic approach when setting strategies and business plans, they will not only profit in the long term but attain a business that is truly sustainable.
