"An Integrated Report helps to clarify the past and lay out the future of an organization. As stakeholders become more forward thinking Integrated Reports will be the primary source they will look to. While traditional historical audit reports tell part of the organization's story, the Integrated Report fills in the details with elements such as resource allocation, outlook and strategy, to name a few."

"The role of the independent CPA has always been rooted in an approach that focuses on historical financial data, but in recent years CPAs have been asked to assist in providing more information not necessarily tied to the historical results or even financial in nature. An Integrated Report may be a useful tool that can supplement the company’s financial statement and provide meaningful information related to a company’s product offerings, workforce, competitive environment, strategic plan and financial forecast, that are not typically included in the financial statements and certainly not required under generally accepted accounting principles."

"The company explains how they create value and elaborates on the strategy and business models. In the Integrated Report the non-financial data is important to give an understanding of the company."
