ASX 200 corporate reporting – shifting towards integrated reporting principles

ASX 200 corporate reporting trends

Corporate reporting reform continues to gain momentum in Australia and throughout the rest of the world, as organisations are looking to better communicate how they create long term value for their shareholders, and not just short term earnings.

For the fourth time, KPMG has undertaken an analysis of reporting trends in the year to 30 June 2017 across the ASX 200 and beyond. The analysis shows how Australian listed companies, and other major public sector, mutual and not-for-profit Australian organisations are improving their reporting.

This year we focused our research on organisations using the principles of integrated reporting to provide more insightful reporting to their shareholders and key stakeholders.

In this publication, we provide:

  • Insights on those areas of reporting where we have seen good progress towards adoption of the integrated reporting principles as well as areas for improvement.
  • Stories from organisations, including investors, who have started down the path towards integrated reporting and the benefits they have experienced to date in doing so. These organisations have found the process of transitioning towards integrated reporting to be positive and the benefits of ‘integrated thinking’ to be invaluable.
  • Overview of next steps based on our experience, to help organisations looking to shift towards integrated reporting.

We encourage organisations to continue to improve the quality of their reporting and move towards at least adoption of the principles of integrated reporting. This approach has now been included in the AICD’s recent policy on corporate reporting reform, as it will help organisations produce more meaningful corporate reporting for their various external users, as well as provide better information to support internal business and investment decision-making.
