ESG Compass: which directives are relevant for your organisation

ESG Compass: which directives are relevant for your organisation?

New European legislation on environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors presents complex challenges such as permits, subsidies, funding and reporting obligations. Navigating the new legislation can be challenging. What are the directives in question, and do they apply to your organisation? Launch the ESG Compass

An overview of the new sustainability legislation

The developments in sustainability legislation are moving at lightning speed. The advent of the Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR) and EU Taxonomy Regulation will ensure transparency on how the financial market integrates sustainability risks and opportunities into investment choices and recommendations. The Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD), which extends the scope of the Non-Financial Reporting Directive (NFRD), together with the Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence Directive (CSDDD), will impose requirements on all major companies. They will be obliged to submit sustainability reports and to identify, prevent, mitigate or eliminate human rights violations and negative effects on the environment within the companies themselves and all along their value chains.
