Integrated reporting (IR) is an accelerated corporate reporting approach over the last few years. The idea underlying integrated reporting is to report not only on the company’s strategy, management, and financial performance, but also on its social, environmental, and economic impacts. Integrated reporting can also be defined as a holistic report aiming to present annual reports and sustainability reports in a single report, as well as short-, medium-, and long-term goals and strategies of the institution. In the integrated reporting framework prepared by the International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC), companies aim to make company value measurable and therefore more understandable and comparable by quantifying the environmental and social implications, as well as the financial statements. In this study, firstly the conceptual framework of integrated reporting and the process of extending to integrated reporting, and then the work done in this area in Turkey were given. In the last part of this study, energy companies which are very important in the world trade and which are coming to the agenda due to environmental problems are considered. In this section, integrated reports of seven companies operating in the energy sector and publishing integrated reports are examined. Lastly, it proposes an integrated report template for the Turkish energy sector to contribute to future work.
