Your integrated annual report represents your company’s biggest investment in business communication. Content remains king for stakeholders. Is your integrated annual report well written and accessible to your target audience? Does it effectively communicate your corporate social responsibility achievements to stakeholders? Does it demonstrate how the concept of sustainability is integrated into your business strategy and operations? We have extensive experience in the financial world and understand the numbers behind the words. We specialise in clear, simple writing that gets the message across.

Integrated Reporting

Integrated Reporting is a new and rapidly evolving field. Driven by an increased focus on corporate governance, led in South Africa by King III, companies are obliged to make sure that financial and non-financial information is presented to stakeholders on an equal footing.

The burden of preparing an integrated annual report – a significant undertaking in its own right – is becoming more complex as best practice guidelines evolve. These include the International Integrated Reporting Council’s IR Framework, the Global Reporting Initiative’s G4 Guidelines (GRI G4) on reporting of sustainability information, the best-practice corporate governance requirements in guidelines such as King III and listing requirements on stock exchanges including the Johannesburg Stock Exchange.

These guidelines increasingly demand a more data-driven approach to reporting – letting the numbers tell the story – than the old narrative approach. This adds another layer of complexity to your reporting, requiring that your company’s commitment to economic sustainability, environmental sustainability, social sustainability and good governance is evident through quantifiable progress rather than fluffy feel-good claims.
