This report was useful for highlighting the importance of integrated reporting, both for individual businesses and also for the wider industry and economy. It can be challenging to move away from traditional reporting to a more integrated format, inevitbaly finance professionals such as management accountants play a part in this, so it would have been useful to have more information around the steps that can be taken to try and implement these changes within your business. It was interesting to read about TATA and the commitment they have to voluntary social development.
