XBRL Canada Webinar - Integrated Reporting and XBRL

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.
