Integrated reporting in corporate communication is a process that results in improved communication, most visibly an ‘integrated report,’ about value creation over time. An integrated report is a concise communication about how an organization’s strategy, governance, performance, and prospects lead to the creation of value over the short, medium, and long term. It represents the integrated summarization of a company’s performance in terms of both financial and other relevant information. Integrated reporting provides greater context for performance data, clarifies how relevant information fits into operations or a business, and may help make decision making better in the long-term.
