This chapter has three main aims. First, it discusses the concept of Integrated Report (IR) as a privileged instrument of companies’ voluntary disclosure practices that answers to the investors and regulators’ call for a greater focus on companies’ strategy, governance, future performance and risks, overcoming a great part of the traditional financial statement’s limitations. Second, it introduces key issues currently being debated relating to the IR Pilot Program and the main characteristics of the companies that decided to adhere to it. Finally, it shows some empirical first results about the corporate governance factors associated with the voluntary decision to prepare an Integrated Report according to the IR International Framework. In so doing the authors draw some conclusions about how Corporate Governance structure and mechanisms—such as legal environment, composition of the board of directors or ownership structure—are related to company’s disclosure policies and the decision to adopt Integrated Report.
