The EU has decided to expand the requirements for sustainability reporting through a new directive, CSRD (Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive). The background is that sustainability efforts have shifted from voluntary to mandatory, with the introduction of CSRD being a crucial milestone.
Due to direct or indirect reporting obligations, both small and large organizations face challenges regarding what the new EU directive means for them. Companies struggle to comprehend the new regulations and to integrate sustainable practices into their business models.
To effectively overcome these challenges, our advisory and training program supports you in preparing for and fulfilling reporting obligations with a step-by-step process tailored to your organization's individual needs and current status quo.

Most Frequently Asked Questions – Sustainability Disclosure & Reporting Advisory Programme:

1. Which companies are affected by the CSRD and when?
The Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) is expected to affect almost 50,000 companies. The CSRD applies to all:
  • Large companies already subject to the NFRD (public interest entities with more than 500 employees) will need to report in 2025 for fiscal year 2024.
  • Large companies not previously subject to the NFRD (meeting at least two of the following three criteria: total assets of ≥ €25 million, a net turnover of ≥ €50 million and/or ≥ 250 employees) will need to report in 2026 for 2025 data.
  • Listed SMEs: Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) that are listed on EU regulated markets (except for micro-enterprises) will also be required to report in 2027 for fiscal year 2026, although they will be subject to less extensive reporting requirements compared to larger companies.
  • Non-EU Companies: Non-EU companies generating a net turnover of €150 million in the EU and that have at least one subsidiary or branch in the EU with a revenue of €40 million will need to report in 2029 for 2028 data.
UK companies should recognise that all EU market customers they serve may be impacted by these regulations, thereby indirectly affecting them." Suppliers' performance data, including your business, may already be required as part of a customer's tender processes. Therefore, as a UK business, the key question is: Do you wish to maintain access to these European customers? If yes, readiness to align with both EU regulations and UK regional and customer demands is recommended.
