Our company is represented in the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) and the European Financial Reporting Advisory Group (EFRAG), including EFRAG PTF and FinDaTex. We help develop the sustainability disclosure standards of tomorrow.
A study from the Climate Disclosure Standard Board (CBSD) on 2020 environmental disclosure reports of 50 leading European Companies shed light on the following conclusions:
“26% did not use targets to monitor environmental performance and 16% failed to link progress updates clearly to ploicies”
“38% applied the double materiality perspective to their environmental disclosures”
“all companies provided GHG emissions disclosure, but only 10% disclosed metrics on biodiversity”
“74% considered both physical and transition risks, but just 4% of all companies clearly disclosed their risks over different time horizons”
“68% referenced TCFD in their disclosure, but only 18% adequately disclosed their resilience to different climate scenarios”
Aims to bring more standardization with the following key principles:
The CSRD will be enforced in 2025 for the fiscal year 2024 for companies which fall under the NFRD directive, in 2026 for the fiscal year 2025 for all companies except SMEs and in 2028 for all companies.
The scope includes companies with:
The number of European companies subjected to mandatory sustainability will rise from 11,700 under the NFRD to more than 50,000 under the CSRD.
