The IRC is a voluntary association in South Africa founded in May 2010. We develop and promote integrated reporting and integrated thinking in South Africa through research, technical guidance and other activities.
This website aims to be an information hub on integrated reporting in South Africa. It offers the available guidance on integrated reporting and the latest research reports and surveys of the integrated reports of organisations in South Africa.
Our organisational members are among the leading professional and industry bodies in South Africa. The founding members are the Association for Savings & Investment South Africa (ASISA), the Institute of Directors in Southern Africa (IoDSA), the JSE Ltd; and the South African Institute of Chartered Accountants (SAICA).
Subsequently, other organisations joined: Banking Association South Africa (BASA), Chartered Secretaries Southern Africa (CSSA), Council of Retirement Funds of South Africa (Batseta), Government Employees Pension Fund, Institute of Internal Auditors South Africa (IIA SA), Financial Services Board (FSB), Chartered Institute of Management Accountants South Africa (CIMA SA) and the South African Institute of Professional Accountants (SAIPA).
Each organisational member nominates member representatives to sit on the IRC and there are also a number of individual members. The list of members is available here.
The founding and current chairman of the IRC is Professor Mervyn King. The activities of the IRC are led by the CEO, Leigh Roberts CA(SA). The secretariat and administration is by Sandy van Esch CA(SA).
The members of the IRC and its Working Group contribute their valued time and expertise voluntarily to support its research and development activities to promote the national and international harmonisation of integrated reporting.
