What is CSRD?

How will CSRD affect you?

On 5 January 2023, the Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD)entered into force. This new directive modernises and strengthens the rules concerning the social and environmental information that companies have to report. A broader set of large companies, as well as listed SMEs, will now be required to report on sustainability – approximately 50 000 companies in total. The first companies will have to apply the new rules for the first time in the 2024 financial year, for reports published in 2025.

The European Financial Reporting Advisory Group (EFRAG) will be responsible for developing draft European standards. The European Commission will adopt the final version of the standards as a delegated act, following consultations with EU member states and a number of European bodies.
