The Albert Luthuli Centre for Responsible Leadership (ALCRL) has been successful in securing funding from the UK High Commission through their Prosperity Fund Programme(PFP) to establish a Centre of Excellence in Integrated Reporting at the University of Pretoria. The Prosperity Fund is the Foreign and Commonwealth’s fund to tackle climate change, strengthen energy security and promote an open global economy in key emerging economies. It will allocate £40 000 (more than R700 000) towards integrated reporting research during the 2015/16 financial year.
Rene Swart, Senior Researcher in Integrated Reporting at the ALCRL, highlights the fact that there were 140 applications from various institutions competing for funding and that only 10 applicants were successful. This partnership agreement will significantly boost the ALCRL’s research capacity in the field of integrated reporting and also enhance its international reputation in the field.
