integrated reporting

From Wikipedia:

Integrated reporting is a process that results in communication, most visibly a periodic “integrated report”, about value creation over time. An integrated report is a concise communication about how an organization’s strategy, governance, performance and prospects lead to the creation of value over the short, medium and long term.

It means the integrated representation of a company’s performance in terms of both financial and other value relevant information. Integrated Reporting provides greater context for performance data, clarifies how value relevant information fits into operations or a business, and may help embed long-termism into company decision making. While the communications that result from will be of benefit to a range of stakeholders, they are principally aimed at providers of financial capital allocation decisions.
