Interconnectedness of global business provides a real opportunity to address sustainability challenges by focusing on shared values.
The Islamic Reporting Initiative (IRI) is part of a growing international alliance of thought leaders who believe that the interconnectedness of global business provides a real opportunity to address social and environmental challenges by focusing on shared values.
Bound together by an unshakable trust in moral and socio-economic values, the Member States of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) share a set of cultural principles and beliefs which are in harmony with the notion of sustainability and corporate social responsibility.
The vision of the IRI is a sustainable global economy that contributes actively to society and the environment integrating the values of peace, compassion, tolerance, justice, environmental stewardship and human dignity into corporate culture.
The mission of the IRI is to enable organizations throughout the world to examine the values that guide their activities and express with clarity and simplicity their contribution to sustainability in society and the environment.
Commended by the OIC, the UN Global Compact Foundation, former World Bank executives, and members in more than 50 countries, the IRI sees the values of peace, compassion, tolerance, justice, environmental stewardship and human dignity as a firm foundation for implementing corporate sustainability and social responsibility on a universal scale.
The IRI aims to provide a range of internationally-recognized business tools, guidelines and standards to accelerate the mainstream implementation of the shared post-2015 goals as outlined in both the OIC-2025 plan of action and the UN Sustainable Development Goals 2030.
The IRI is an independent, not-for-profit organization headquartered in the UAE. It is a global initiative governed by the IRI Reporting Standard Foundation, an EU Public Benefit Organization based in the Netherlands.
