The integrated approach should be based on international reporting framework of the International Integrated Reporting Council. There are five factors that made the application effective. First, they engage directors and top management early in the process. Second, they use the process to interrogate the strategies. Third, they provide reporting teams with clear mandates and ensure integration between corporate functions. Fourth, they embed reporting within new and existing management systems.
