The organisation will be there for two years. Paul Druckman, Chief Executive Officer of IIRC and the UK located team members of approximately 10 people will be based there.
Helen Brand, ACCA’s chief executive, says: 'We are delighted to be able to offer the IIRC accommodation at ACCA’s London premises. We already co-operate extensively, and ACCA is committed to the aims of the IIRC. We are part of the pilot programme for Integrated Reporting and will be working on this throughout 2012.'
Paul Druckman from the IIRC says: 'We are grateful to ACCA for allowing us to occupy a floor of such prestigious offices in Lincoln's Inn Fields. ACCA has been involved for so long in corporate responsibility and sustainability, their deep connection to integrated reporting is only reinforced by this generous gesture.'
The IIRC is a powerful, international cross section of leaders from the corporate, investment, accounting, securities, regulatory, academic and standard-setting sectors as well as civil society. Integrated Reporting demonstrates the linkages between an organisation’s strategy, governance and financial performance and the social, environmental and economic context within which it operates. ACCA recently signed up to as a pilot for the Integrated Reporting Pilot Programme.
