European companies now have to follow the CSRD regulations, representing 75% of all EU companies' turnover.

The Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) has entered into force on the January 1, 2024 and some companies are expected to publish their first CSRD report in 2025.

The CSRD strengthens and expands upon the Non-Financial Reporting Directive (NFRD), and introduces the European Sustainability Reporting Standards (ESRS). Get ahead of the curve and ensure compliance with CSRD's mandatory requirements starting January 1, 2024. Businesses who prepare now will ultimately lead in the evolving corporate landscape.
