Video details

Integrated reporting has been widely suggested as a potential force for good in improving understanding of the role businesses and investors play in society. ‎Current financial reporting has been criticised as being too lengthy, too complex and ‎at least partly responsible for driving a short-term focus in the markets. Can ‎integrated reporting provide a wider, more long-term view of the value companies bring to their investors, customers and society? Or is it ultimately just a case of style ‎over substance?

This event was organised by The Royal Society of Edinburgh in partnership with Standard Life Plc.
