Chief Executive Officer - International Integrated Reporting Council
Spearheading global adoption of integrated reporting
Richard Howitt is Chief Executive Officer of the International Integrated Reporting Council.
He is spearheading the adoption of Integrated Reporting globally and is a major thought leader in international debates on good corporate governance, shifting investment to the long-term and inclusive capitalism.
Richard travels extensively to meet with more than 1,500 global businesses who are adopting Integrated Reporting as well as with advocates of Integrated Reporting in policy and investor communities.
He is a member of the B20 group of international business leaders who dialogue with G20 governments. He is also a member of the EU’s multi-stakeholder platform on the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals in the EU.
Richard has been involved in the evolution of Integrated Reporting from the outset, as a member of HRH The Prince of Wales Annual Forum on Accounting for Sustainability.
Prior to being appointed to the IIRC, Richard served as an elected Member of the European Parliament for more than twenty years and was rapporteur on corporate responsibility. In this capacity, he was key architect of the EU’s non-financial information directive, one of the biggest transformations in corporate disclosure anywhere in the world.
