Introduction

There is a growing social and regulatory drive for public sector organizations to provide performance reporting that can be used to assess the delivery of organizations’ strategies. This pressure comes not only from government in its oversight capacity but from all interested key stakeholders.

Integrated Reporting introduces a business approach to reporting in the public sector that fully embraces stakeholder inclusivity and the critical need for financial, economic, environmental, social and governance sustainability.

Public sector organisations already publish a extensive range of data on their broader impacts and performance. One of the key opportunities (and challenges) for public sector organisations is to use integrated reporting to understand and clarify the connectivity of all of this information, with the aim of presenting a more complete and coherent picture.

The program answers questions such as:

  • What is integrated reporting in the context of the public sector?
  • What is The International Integrated Reporting Framework?
  • How does integrated reporting the public sector look like in practice?
  • Why it is important for businesses to effectively provide integrated reporting?
