Integrated Reporting Council’s Combination With the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board

Slaughter and May supported Charles Tilley and Katharine Dawson of IIRC.

International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC) combined with the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) to form the Value Reporting Foundation.

The Value Reporting Foundation will support business and investor decision-making with three key resources: Integrated Thinking Principles, Integrated Reporting Framework and SASB Standards. These tools help businesses and investors develop a shared understanding of enterprise value and how it is created, preserved or eroded over time. The new body aims to deliver a more coherent corporate reporting system by working closely with the IFRS Foundation and other leading framework providers and standard-setters around the world. Following the combination, the Value Reporting Foundation will have staff on four continents and strong international investor and business support for its mission to broaden the scope of corporate reporting.
