We recorded our Sustainability Reporting: Compliance and Beyond episode on Wednesday 29 March.
The Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) is now in force and drastically changes the sustainability reporting landscape in the EU. The CSRD aims to harmonise and improve the nature and extent of environmental, social and governance (ESG) information which is made available to stakeholders. It will impose mandatory sustainability reporting requirements on approximately 50,000 companies across the EU and beyond. Many companies may also comply voluntarily as their value chains and other stakeholders begin to request or expect alignment with CSRD standards.
Ready for the CSRD?
In this episode, our speakers provided an overview of the scope of the CSRD and its reporting requirements and, crucially, provided practical guidance on how to kickstart or improve a company’s sustainability reporting strategy. This included insights from a sustainability-reporting expert within the business setting and from a specialist technical consultant to guide your company on its next steps. Our speakers discussed the importance of robust governance structures in preparing for and managing the reporting process.
