Overview

Winner of the 2010 PROSE Award for Best Business, Finance, & Management Book!

"One Report" refers to an emerging trend in business taking place throughout the world where companies are going beyond separate reports for financial and nonfinancial (e.g., corporate social responsibility or sustainability) results and integrating both into a single integrated report. At the same time, they are also leveraging the Internet to provide more detailed results to all of their stakeholders and for improving their level of dialogue and engagement with them. Providing best practice examples from companies around the world, One Report shows how integrated reporting adds tremendous value to the company and all of its stakeholders, including shareholders, and also ultimately contributes to a sustainable society.

  • Focuses on the emerging trend of integrated reporting as a top priority for companies, investors, regulators, auditors and civil society
  • Provides compelling case studies from some of the world's leading companies doing integrated reporting
  • Addresses how companies can move toward One Report and how it can become a keystone of a sustainable strategy for both the company and society
  • Explains what others-such as analysts, shareholders, other stakeholders, auditors, regulators, legislators, and civil society-need to do to enable the rapid and broad adoption of One Report

Filled with case studies and the most current trends on integrated reporting, this book is an invaluable guidebook on the future of reporting and how this future can lead to a sustainable society.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"If you are an investor, shareholder or financial analyst, with an interest in sustainability, you will probably enjoy the recent publication, One Report. In this book, the authors offer a strong endorsement of integrated reporting, claiming a "compelling case" for this to be adopted "all over the world, by public and private companies alike." (csrwire.com, April 13, 2010)

"One Report is about creating a better corporate reporting system that integrates the reporting of financial, environmental, social, and governance performance, with a particular focus on the ability of a company to operate in an environmentally sustainable manner. The book incorporates several excellent real-world examples of the One Report concept. The book is well-researched and the quality of the writing is excellent." (accountingtools.com, April 2010)

"This is the first book I have seen on integrated reporting. One of the most telling points made in the book is the need for companies to integrate sustainable strategies into their businesses. The authors go on to say that integrated reporting forces companies to do this because of the governance requirements facing organizations today. I also like the sections dealing with how companies should be making use of social media such as Facebook to communicate and engage with stakeholders. The book is well worth reading. It is short and gives a good overview of the topic." (sustainabilitysa.org, April 2010)

"In an interview with IR Magazine, Krzus makes it clear that he and Eccles aren't touting a new product or service. For their book, they identified and cataloged best practice by studying companies such as the Netherlands' Philips, Denmark's Novo Nordisk, Brazil's Natura, and US-based United Technologies Corporation." (thecrossbordergroup.com, March 9, 2010)

"Integrated reporting is the subject of Harvard Business School Senior Lecturer Robert Eccles' new book, One Report. According to Professor Eccles, there are only a handful of companies in the world that practice integrated reporting. The idea behind integrated reporting is much more than a static paper document or PDF. It's a web-based approach that makes strategic use of Web 2.0 tools and technologies to enable users to do their own analyses. Integrated reporting offers several benefits...such as deepened engagement with stakeholders, improved corporate governance and communication of performance with "ONE" conversation. Just imagine, one conversation to share your reputation." (reputationxchange.com, March 8, 2010)
