In today’s rapidly changing world, the pursuit of sustainable development is not just a choice—it’s an imperative. Organizations all over the globe recognize the pivotal role they play in shaping a better future, embracing their sensitivity to environmental issues, making meaningful social contributions, and upholding strong governance policies (ESG). The time has come to unleash the power of these factors and drive positive change like never before.
At the heart of this transition is understanding and measuring impact. Clear Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) guide decision-making towards sustainability. It’s a journey that demands consistent and reliable data, unveiling an organization’s true environmental and societal footprint. That’s why Corporate Sustainability Reporting has become an unwavering mandate for large-sized and public organizations since 2017, through the Non-Financial Reporting Directive (NFRD).
In 2021, the Commission adopted a proposal for a “Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD)” which amends the existing reporting requirements of the NFRD. The proposal extends the scope to all large companies with over 250 personnel or over 40 mln revenue and all companies listed on regulated markets including banks and insurance companies or other large organisations in regulated industries. Criteria is becoming stricter, which means that almost all companies will need to be made aware of these new directives and guidelines in order to be able to comply and meet new requirements as set by the EU.
This course invites you to explore reporting frameworks with a focus on the European Sustainability Reporting Standards (ESRS).
Guided by industry experts and leading professionals, you will gain a comprehensive understanding of how reporting frameworks harmonize with organizational goals, enabling the measurement of progress towards a sustainable future. “Corporate Sustainability Reporting Essentials” course will help you grasp the true essence of sustainability reporting and its transformative power. Join us to unlock your organization’s potential.
Note: This course is designed for internal practitioners within organizations who are embarking on the sustainability reporting journey. No prior reporting experience is required, as we’ll walk alongside you, empowering you with the knowledge and tools needed to make a meaningful difference.
