Campaign: Director Notes

(3BL Media / theCSRfeed) December 9, 2011 - A new Director Note, released by The Conference Board, "examines the concept of integrated reporting and its current state of adoption around the globe. It also discusses the benefits to both companies and society and recommends ways boards can help their organizations accelerate the implementation of integrated reporting."

In the Director Note, written by Robert G. Eccles and George Serafeim, is adapted from the book chapter, "Accelerating the Adoption of Integrated Reporting," in Francesco de Leo and Matthias Vollbracht (Eds.), CSR Index (Zurich, InnoVatio Publishing Limited, 2011), the authors state, "ensuring the universal adoption of integrated reporting by all listed companies within the next five years will require a combination of market and regulatory forces." The piece then proposes a few "forces" that could drive adoption of a global integrated reporting framework and notes the importance of voluntary adoption by companies.
