In contemplating the scope and nature of content to be included in the Integrated and Sustainability Reporting Handbook, the Editorial Board has considered various content objectives which are directed at providing a

meaningful, credible and relevant content resource for key reporting stakeholder groups in South Africa.

The handbook is a publication that represents a volume of content which is a reflection of the reporting landscape at a particular point in time. The emphasis and inclusion of subject matter may shift from volume to volume but will always be directed at the content objectives.

The content objectives have informed the development of editorial principles which have guided calls for interest, the article selection process and the editing and review processes (where applicable).

Content Objectives:

  • To deliver content that is as accurate, balanced and as independent as possible.
  • To be fair and inclusive in the process of soliciting and selecting content.
