A comprehensive guide to CSRD reporting possibilities and demands

The CSRD – Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directives – is about to take corporate sustainability to a new level, imposing substantially higher demands on transparency about both companies own business operations as well as their supply chains regarding environmental and social impacts and risks. Financial, environmental and social sustainability must be integrated. For many organisations, this means that the sustainability function is moved to the finance department, becoming a CFO responsibility. At the same time, the new requirements risk ending up in an endless hunt for often poor data, where companies may get lost in the details and fail to find the overview needed to implement real transformation in the business.
