INTEGRATED REPORTING ACCORDING TO IIRC FROM 2011 TO 2015
ABSTRACT The objective of this paper is to check if integrated reporting adheres properly to International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC) requirements or only follows some guidelines, and whether these are prioritized depending on the effects of other variables. We studied a sample of all the voluntarily issued integrated reports available on the IIRC database at 1st April 2017, for the period 2011-2015, which total 174. The main conclusions are that compliance with IIRC guiding principles is low and heterogeneous, and that some principles are adhered to more than others. There are core principles of the integrated reporting that are determined by the date of publication of the IIRC framework, while the materiality used depends on the type of company.
