Organizational structure

Our structure and governance are strictly following the approved model of the Foundations structure as set forward by the Netherlands, where United Nations International Court of Justice resides. As such IRI Reporting standard enjoys the highest accreditation of public benefit organization, ANBI status.

Organizational Structure

The Trustees of the IRI Reporting Standard Foundation are a highly select group of respected individuals that have accepted the responsibility to assure compliance with the Mission of the IRI to the stakeholders of the organization as well as to the jurisdictional governing authorities. The Foundation Trustees will also act as a Supervisory Board to the IRI to approve plans and budgets of the IRI on an annual basis.

These are those Patrons that have helped to fund the crucial initial stages of organizational development that are helping to put into place the processes by which the values and principles of Islam are translated into workable protocols for corporate reporting.

Patrons are individual and corporate thought leaders who support the potential of sustainable development through Islamic principles and have provided funding for the ongoing development and operations of the Islamic Reporting Initiative.

This is the person responsible to the Foundation for providing guidance, leadership and voice to the Islamic Reporting Initiative in fulfilling the duties of the organization to bring the values and principles of Islam to corporate stakeholders throughout the world.

The office of the Director General is the administrative body of the IRI – Directors that oversee the membership, communications and operations functions within the organization.

Led by the Standards Director who reports to the Director General, this select group of highly qualified internal and external resources from around the world is responsible for the creation, preservation and upkeep of the IRI reporting protocol.

The Advisory Council is the top-level consultative and advisory body of the IRI. Its role is to provide strategic input and support of the effective development and implementation of the IRI goals and objectives. The Council is a space for dialogue and exchange that enables the IRI to gain invaluable insight and practical input from local and regional perspectives on the functional development of the organization. It will consist of several committees of expertise in order to provide the greatest benefit to the IRI.

The Advisory Council Secretariat is the leadership group amongst the Advisory Council members who interact most actively with the Standards Body, the Director General and the Office of the Director General in conveying the thoughts and advice of the Advisory Council.

In so much as the mission of the IRI is to provide a guiding framework for companies based on Islamic values and principles, corporate members are at the very core of the initiative. The IRI strives to provide guidance to companies on how to examine the values and principles they use to further a more sustainable society and environment and to inform their stakeholders on compliance with these values and principles. Additionally, many individuals throughout the world share in the vision of the IRI and can both benefit from and contribute to the ongoing operations of the organization.

A variety of organizations have the ability to significantly contribute to the goals and objectives of the IRI. These organizations include academic institutions, think tanks, government and non-governmental organizations, advisory businesses and consulting firms. The IRI is determined to maintain a very high standard of excellence in all aspects of its mission.
It welcomes Knowledge Partners to participate in the success of the IRI.
