Integrated Management Reporting

The A4S CFO Network focusses on delivering tangible outcomes and undertakes a number of projects each year to develop practical guidance on specific areas of financial decision making, or risk management. The projects are selected by the CFOs and each can choose for their organization to take part in one, or all, projects by nominating a suitable representative to join the relevant team. 

The Integrated Management Reporting project is currently in development.

Project aims

To improve the integration of material environmental and social issues into management reporting, the project team aim to:

  • understand current practice
  • identify challenges faced 
  • define good practice
     

Background

Through the IIRC and GRI, significant improvements have been made to integrate financial and sustainability information in external reporting, however much of this progress has not yet made its way through to internal management reporting processes.

The collation and reporting of social and environmental metrics in internal reports can be a value-adding exercise for companies, leading to improved decision making.
 

Outcomes

Practical guidance will be developed with a range of tools, case studies and tips for finance professionals.
