January 25, 2011 -- Noon - 1:00PM ET
TORONTO, Jan. 12 /CNW/ - A webinar discussing Integrated Reporting and
XBRL will be hosted by XBRL Canada on January 25 at 12 noon ET.
Integrated Reporting is an evolution in the way companies report to
their stakeholders by combining financial, sustainability and
governance reporting all in one report; whereas, at present, these have
traditionally been presented in separate reports.
Existing market evidence already indicates the value investors, analysts
and other stakeholders place on important non-financial information
(e.g., Environmental, Social and Governance or ESG data) that gives a
more comprehensive view of an organization's performance.
Recently, over 250 of the world's largest institutional investors
representing over $15 trillion in combined assets under management
demonstrated their commitment through the UN Principles for Responsible
Investment to invest in companies that follow good sustainability and
Environmental, Social and Governance practices. Taxonomies and
frameworks are under development now to help organizations report on an
integrated basis. In the absence of widespread regulatory mandates,
companies of all sizes have already implemented integrated reporting,
and the movement continues to gain momentum. Now is the time to focus
on integrated reporting and what your role in that process may be.
This webinar will explore how XBRL can help in the efforts to make
integrated reporting a standard of corporate reporting for both
internal and external audiences. Presenters will be Liv Watson and Brad Monterio, both globally recognized experts in XBRL and integrated reporting
issues. Both Liv and Brad recently contributed a chapter to "The
Landscape of Integrated Reporting: Reflections and Next Steps"
published by Harvard Business School in November 2010.
Liv is Director and member of the senior management team of
AccountAbility where she leads the Research and Development function.
She is also an Executive Advisor to WebFilings, a provider of web-based
software for SEC financial reporting. Brad is Managing Director of
Colcomgroup, a consultancy on XBRL, accounting, and sustainability/ESG
issues, as well as Managing Director of CMH Partners, an investment
banking advisory firm.
