This week CSRWire published my editorial on the subject of integrated reporting. You can read it here. Thanks CSRWire!
Integrated reporting is a very interesting subject and one which usually polarizes opinions of experts. The book "One Report" by Eccles and Krzus, which inspired me to write, is a strrong advocate for integrated reporting and even suggests that every company, public or private, everywhere, should be bound by legislation to produce an integrated financial and non-financial report. The authors' recommendations do not stretch as far as to suggest what level of detail of non-financial content should be published in these reports, and this is open for debate, but they do attempt to present what they call a "compelling case".
Except that I personally do not find it all that compelling. My piece in CSRWire explains why.
That's it. Short and sweet. Well, short.
