What's changed?

Strict regulations for sustainability reporting as of 2024

Starting in 2024, many companies within the European Union will face new legal requirements for sustainability reporting. The EU Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD), which came into force on 5 January 2023, significantly changed the scope and nature of sustainability reporting. For the first time, affected companies will have to report on the entire value chain.


The aim of the new EU directive is to establish binding reporting standards at EU level and enhance the responsibility of EU companies in terms of climate action and sustainability. 

Does your company fulfil the requirements of the sustainability reporting obligation?

The new EU directive has impacted companies reporting under the NFRD (Non-Financial Reporting Directive) since 2014, but medium-sized companies and even third-country companies listed and operating on EU-regulated markets are affected. It is estimated that the CSRD affects around 50,000 companies across the EU. Implementing these requirements can be a real challenge for many. Our aim is to help you meet these new standards.
