To date, most of my clients have been using this approach for internal purposes (like growth, performance and value creation) but not for external reporting. So I am glad to have examples in the public sphere. And I decided that it would help advance U.S. practice to create a directory of companies that are using principles of integrated reporting here.
I’ve now written a number of reviews and thought I would create a directory of them.

Some of the basic questions addressed are whether the report is published in the investor relations sections of the website, if/how stakeholders are identified, if/how the company presents its capitals.
