CSRD & ESRS Practitioner Training Course

Comprehensive CSRD Understanding for Effective Sustainability Reporting

With the Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD), transparent sustainability reporting will become compulsory for many organizations, which may not have disclosed any environmental, social or governance information before. Our Practitioner Training Course provides an introduction to the new CSRD and connected European Sustainability Reporting Standards (ESRS), offering your employees involved in sustainability reporting (such as sustainability managers , HR managers, auditors, and controllers) in-depth understanding of the new disclosure requirements. They get a detailed walkthrough of the reporting process and practice crucial steps such as materiality assessment. This ensures your employees are equipped with the knowledge necessary to actively contribute to each step of your organization’s sustainability reporting journey.

Regulatory Framework
The Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) is an EU directive that aims to enhance and standardize the sustainability reporting requirements for organizations. It expands on the previous Non-Financial Reporting Directive (NFRD) by broadening the scope of companies required to report through a staggered approach, increasing the detail and rigor of the reports and requiring assurance on the reported information. The CSRD mandates that organizations disclose information on their environmental impact, social practices and governance matters to provide stakeholders with a comprehensive view of their sustainability performance. This initiative is part of the EU's broader strategy to integrate sustainable finance into its financial system and increase transparency in corporate behavior.
