We recently organised a Policy Colab on “Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive: Roadmap to Implementation”, jointly with our Ally Accountancy Europe. This roundtable on the Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) aimed to reflect upon how this initiative will improve transparency and access to reliable non-financial information from companies, as well as the phases required for effective delivery. The publication of the CSRD marks a seismic shift to revolutionising the current context of corporate reporting on environmental, social and governance information. The event gathered 50 participants, representing the interests of the investor, regulatory, supervisory, reporting standards and civil society sector.
The roundtable marked a series of future dialogues with policymakers to develop practical recommendations on how to better define the relationship between non-financial reporting and financial performance through more explicit linkages of disclosure data to corporate sustainability goals.
