About Robert Eccles
Robert G. Eccles first joined the faculty at the Harvard Business School in 1979 and received tenure in 1989. He left in 1993 to work in the private sector and rejoined the faculty in 2007. In 2014 – 2015 he was a Visiting Lecturer at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Sloan School of Management.

He has written four books on this subject, the most recent one is The Integrated Reporting Movement: Meaning, Momentum, Motives, and Materiality (with Michael P. Krzus and Sydney Ribot). He is a member of the Steering Committee of the International Integrated Reporting Committee and on the Board of Directors of the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB).
