The Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) is the new EU legislation regulating how and what European companies are required to report in terms of environmental, social and governance aspects. The directive comes with a mandatory reporting standard, the European Sustainability Reporting Standard (ESRS).

The European Sustainability Reporting Standard (ESRS) will change the sustainability reporting landscape, requiring companies to disclose more detailed and forward-looking reporting based on a double materiality assessment that which includes both impact, business risks and opportunities. It is also proposed that companies must have their sustainability information assured, increasing the need for structured, transparent and accurate reporting. The requirement for limited assurance will put a strong focus on companies having solid processes in place for managing and following up on all ESG data.
