Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive
The Next Big Challenge for EU Companies.
What is CSRD, who will it affect and how can we prepare for it?
The CSRD (Corporate sustainability reporting directive) has been approved by the EU, and reporting obligations starts in 2024
The European Union has been actively working to shift the economy to a sustainable path. This includes creating a comprehensive legislative package, in which CSRD (Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive) is a key element. The legislation aims to make companies transparent about their ESG performance and data. The regulation and related standards will affect a huge range of companies along with their supply chains.
The modifications will improve the sustainability information’s status and increase its financial information comparability. At the same time, it is an opportunity for the companies to use CSRD as a framework to develop themselves towards a sustainable direction. Collecting data, ESG performance by the near deadline (2024-2025) is a huge task, and it is essential to get digital support.
