The Corporate Social Responsibility Directive (CSRD) which came into force in January 2023, marks a significant shift in the landscape of sustainability reporting in the EU. The directive and related European Sustainability Reporting Standards (ESRS) require companies to disclose on environmental, social and governance topics to enhance transparency and sustainability in corporate practices.
