A4S and GRI Announce Formation of the IIRC
The Prince’s Accounting for Sustainability Project (A4S) and the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) announced today the formation of the International Integrated Reporting Committee (IIRC). The IIRC brings together a cross section of representatives from the corporate, accounting, securities, regulatory, NGO, and standard-setting sectors. Ian Ball, CEO of IFAC, will serve as co-chairman of the Working Group.
The objective of the IIRC is to create a globally accepted framework for accounting for sustainability that brings together financial, environmental, social, and governance information in a clear, concise, consistent, and comparable format. The intention is to help with the development of more comprehensive and comprehensible information about an organization’s total performance, prospective as well as retrospective, to meet the needs of the emerging, more sustainable, global economic model.
Please see the attached press release issued and briefing notes. For further information regarding the IIRC, please see www.integratedreporting.org.
