Understanding the CSRD
The Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) is an EU directive that aims to improve the transparency and comparability of corporate sustainability data. It requires companies to prepare and disclose detailed reports on environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues, including Scope 3 emissions.

Who will be affected by the CSRD and when?
The CSRD significantly extends the scope of sustainability reporting to a wider range of companies. Any company that meets at least two of the following criteria 250+ employees, €40m+ turnover or €20m+ total assets, will be required to comply. From 2024, the CSRD will apply to companies already subject to the Non-Financial Reporting Directive (NFRD). By 2025, other large companies will be included and by 2026, listed small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) will also have to comply.

Are you ready for reporting? Get your ducks in a row now!
The two-hour webinar will cover the essentials of CSRD reporting, including the European Sustainability Reporting Standards (ESRS), which outline nearly 1,200 data points. Participants will learn how to integrate sustainability data into management reports and understand the need for external assurance on all disclosed information. The webinar will focus on double materiality, which requires companies to assess both their impact on the environment and the environment’s impact on them. It will also highlight the importance of working with stakeholders such as employees, shareholders, customers and local authorities. Participants will learn how improved sustainability reporting can enhance a company’s credibility, trust and value, while providing insights for optimising long-term performance.
