Professor George Serafeim: "The research Bob and I are doing is focused on helping companies develop sustainable long-term strategies and investors to earn superior long-term returns. Integrated reporting is an important new and leading business practice that contributes to both of these objectives."
NASDAQ OMX has affirmed its commitment to sustainable business practices, and the delivery of integrated reporting education is an important part of that commitment.
Lars Ottersgård, Senior Vice President NASDAQ OMX: "At NASDAQ OMX we have always been a believer that a commitment to sustainability is good for a company's financial performance and that the best way to communicate on both is through integrated reporting. As part of our commitment to sustainability and integrated reporting, NASDAQ OMX is one of the co-authors and signatories of the Sustainable Stock Exchange Initiative. As an organization ourselves, we are also participating in the IIRC Pilot Programme. Thus we are advocating for our listed companies and any others who want to participate in this training program what we are already doing for ourselves."
Robert Pijselman, CEO of BWise: "Together with Harvard Business School Professors Eccles and Serafeim and the BWise Academy, we have organized a unique world class leadership training program in terms of the lecturers and quests speakers in order to enable corporate executives to not only understand and utilize the <IR> Framework, but most importantly to get a better understanding of the benefits of the integrated reporting approach and the added value it can bring to a company."
