According to the International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC), Integrated Reporting, or <IR>, is enhancing the way organizations think, plan and report the story of their business.

Integrated Reporting helps companies clearly articulate their value creation process by way of material financial and non-financial performance indicators, and how they interact with the business model of the company. It also helps  businesses think holistically about their strategy and plans, make informed decisions and manage key risks to build investor and stakeholder confidence and improve future performance. <IR> is shaped by a diverse coalition including business leaders and investors to drive a global evolution in corporate reporting.


In this workshop, Mike Krzus and Sustainserv’s Managing Partner, Bernd Kasemir, will discuss An Effective Approach to Integrated Reporting and Integrated Management. Their presentation will draw upon Mike Krzus’ recently released white paper “Integrated Reporting for a Long-Term Strategy” and Sustainserv’s experience supporting the global chemical company, Clariant, with the development of Clariant’s Integrated Report 2016 and Sustainability Report 2016. We will dive into the benefits and long-term value of Integrated Reporting while highlighting ways it communicates innovatively and effectively to key stakeholders.

Date: Tuesday, May 2, 2017
Time: 11:30am - 1:30pm
Location: 31 State Street, 10th Floor, Boston, MA

Lunch and validated parking at the Garage at Post Office Square will be provided.
