Integrated Reporting: Measurement Matters - Salterbaxter
Many reporters certainly now know what integrated reporting is, and there are some great examples out there. But, having looked at the best integrated reports the world has to offer, we sense that a divide is opening up – one at least as big as that between companies who spurn integration, and those who embrace it. And that divide is the measurement of outcomes.
Everyone’s talking about integrated reporting. But not everyone has realised that there’s a new divide opening up within the integrated reporting movement.
It seems clear to us that the integrated reporters who show, rather than tell (and use the lens of the ‘capitals’ to do so), are the only ones able to truly convince their stakeholders that their company is doing something different. These reporters are:
– Aligning performance with the capitals
– Using the capitals to measure performance
– Measuring the unmeasurable
– Treating the capitals as connected stocks of value
In 'Integrated reporting: measurement matters', we show how these techniques are bringing us closer to the kind of meaningful integrated reporting envisioned by the IIRC.
