About this Report

According to the International <IR> Framework, published by the International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC) on December 2013, an integrated report is a concise communication about how an organization’s strategy, governance, and prospects, in the context of its external environment, lead to the creation of value in the short, medium and long term.
The International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC) is a global coalition of regulators, investors, companies, standard setters, the accounting profession and NGOs.
