In breve

In recent years, a newly-created corporate communication and value representation tool has emerged, capturing the attention of companies, standard setters, and academic literature. This tool, called Integrated Reporting (IR), aims to provide a holistic overview of business management by including financial and non-financial information in a single report. This book discusses the rise of IR and examines the academic literature in detail. This work also analyses the role of corporate governance mechanisms in correctly representing integrated information.

Presentazione del volume

In recent years, a newly-created corporate communication and value representation tool has emerged, capturing the attention of companies, standard setters, and academic literature. This tool, called Integrated Reporting (IR), has been developed by the International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC) and aims to provide a holistic overview of business management by including financial and non-financial information in a single report. This work discusses the rise of IR and examines the academic literature in detail to identify, firstly, the different aspects scholars have investigated on and, secondly, the different theoretical perspectives that have been used to frame the IR phenomenon. This work also analyses the role of corporate governance mechanisms in correctly representing integrated information. Results show a focus by researchers on numerous areas of interest related to IR and the use of different theoretical perspectives. Furthermore, they demonstrate a clear influence of some corporate governance mechanisms such as the board of directors, audit committee and corporate social responsibility (CSR) committee on IR policies.
