Data Bites: Is your company ready for the upcoming Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) reporting requirements?

The Webinar in a Nutshell:

  • The entering of the EU’s Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) into force in January 2023 brings about major implications for the annual reporting of up to 49,000 companies in the EU. The biggest companies will be required to disclose extensive information on their sustainability performance (ESG) already from financial year 2024 onwards. A failure to meet the requirements will lead to financial penalties. The standardised form of reporting under the CSRD will bring greater transparency and comparability. Investors will use reports and the KPIs as a basis for investment decisions, making corporate sustainability a key business issue.
  • Given the extensiveness of the CSRD requirements, it is wise to start preparing as early as possible. Being the heart of the CSRD, the climate-related requirements are especially demanding and pose the greatest challenges for companies to develop. As an international sustainability consultancy and project developer with over 15 years of industry experience, EcoAct, an Atos company, can support you in the implementation of the CSRD requirements. They have undertaken carbon reduction and sustainability projects for some of the world’s leading brands and partner with a wide range of public and private organisations to further develop and drive progress toward net zero.
