Mar
29

09:00 - 17:00

The new EU law on sustainability reporting, CSRD (Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive) will come into force from 2024. This means that the current Non-financial Reporting Directive (NFRD) will be replaced and with that the sustainability reporting requirements will fundamentally change and become significantly more comprehensive. This training goes through what CSRD means, which companies are covered, how it affects your company and how to report according to the new legal requirements.

CSRD (Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive) is an EU directive that aims to improve companies’ sustainability reporting, drive increased transparency and comparability and includes more companies under the mandatory requirements for sustainability reporting.

The CSRD also includes a new mandatory standard for sustainability reporting, ESRS (European Sustainability Reporting Standards), which is currently being developed. It describes in detail what is to be reported, what principles are to be used to produce the information and how it is to be published.

The course covers:

  • What CSRD means
  • What changes CSRD entails for sustainability reporting
  • What requirements will CSRD will place on companies that must report sustainability in accordance with the Swedish Annual Accounts Act?
  • Who is covered by the CSRD
  • What the new mandatory accounting standard ESRS means and how you report according to it
  • What needs to be included in the report and how the information is to be produced
  • How to perform a double materiality analysis according to CSRD / ESRS
  • The link between CSRD and other sustainability reporting frameworks, such as GRI and SASB
