This is one of the findings from KPMG’s fifth survey looking at the corporate reporting trends of the ASX 200. This publication explores the drivers of change in Australia and focuses on the next steps organisations can take.

Examples of good practice in corporate reporting are included in the report.

Key findings

  • Continued shift by organisations towards using the principles of <IR> with Qantas, Brambles and AGL joining the likes of ANZ, Stockland, NAB, GPT and Lendlease in referencing the principles of <IR> in their annual reporting portfolio.
  • Examples of innovative reporting are emerging, including how technology can be used to help drive the connectivity of information.

We encourage organisations to continue to improve the quality of their reporting and move towards at least adoption of the principles of integrated reporting for more meaningful corporate reporting and to provide better information to support internal business and investment decision-making.
