In this webcast, panelists explore the impact of the European Union Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) that marks a step change in reporting and in the assurance of nonfinancial information.
Business leaders have a major question to address: How can they make business work for sustainability, and make sustainability work for business?
This client webcast is the third in a series aimed at helping leaders, who are responsible for sustainability strategy and reporting, understand how to create and protect value by embedding sustainability in their business strategies, transformation programs, reporting regimes, and in their communications.
This episode aims to understand why the EU Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) marks a step change in reporting and in the assurance of non-financial information and why it is more than just a reporting exercise.
The topics to be discussed:
- The Directive proposal’s content (scope of application, mandatory standards, external assurance, etc.)
- The potential mandatory EFRAG sustainability reporting standards content (KPIs and targets)
- The role of the audit committee and auditors
- How will the new directive impact your business and what do you need to do to prepare?
- What will the directive mean for your company’s processes and controls?
- What steps do you need to take to identify and gather the required sustainability-related information, manage social, environmental and governance risks, draw up policies, and set targets and KPIs?
