Our third annual review of Fortune 200 and other leading companies tracks the evolution of trends in corporate reporting. The vast majority of Fortune 200 companies — 77%, the same as in 2012 — choose to use the annual report as an opportunity to communicate beyond the minimum financial requirements.
Interactive online reports are popular, and use of high quality video is growing. Print remains a mainstay, although print runs and page counts will likely stay at low levels. More companies are issuing responsibility reports or including responsibility reporting in their annual reports. Integrated reporting has been embraced by leading US corporations. The use of tablets/smart phone apps remains in its infancy.
