Launched in April 2015, the Islamic Reporting Initiative (IRI) has rapidly gained momentum and support from businesses, governmental organizations, non-profit organizations, and educational institutions from all over the world.
The IRI aims to create the first mainstream reporting framework for Corporate
Sustainability and Social Responsibility (CSR) based on Islamic principles, and will
enable organizations to inclusively assess, report, verify, and certify their CSR programs.
The IRI , a not-for-profit organization, has the potential to be of immediate benefit to organizations in over 50 countries, being of particular relevance to members of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC ). The IRI is currently in the first of three development phases, which sees the IRI gathering signatory members and partners to represent all sectors. Already the IRI has members from across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA ), central and south-east Asia, and Europe, so far representing business sectors from healthcare, finance, education and the environment.
