A flood of EU regulations is coming towards European companies with regard to sustainability reporting. It is very hard for companies to comprehend what needs to be done to comply. It is, however, obligated for more than 50.000 companies in Europe. This whitepaper helps companies to understand how they can best comply with all these EU regulations. The whitepaper was written by Nina van Rijn and Kees Kerstens from Salacia in cooperation with Wesley Nijmeijer & Floor Hooijman from Rebel.
As of last march 2022 all financial market participants have to comply with the Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR). Soon, also the Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) enters into force. 1000 pages of legal text explain the companies what needs to be done. This puts a big pressure on the resources of a company to gather information, assemble the report and verify the data.
In working with both public and private parties, Salacia and Rebel see the need for data and transparency. This need becomes especially transparent in the value chain, as scope 3 emissions often are unclear. All the data collected by companies to comply with the directives can be used to the benefit of the company. The transparency can help companies with their investment choices and can help to proof emission reduction.
Salacia and Rebel believe the reporting obligations are an opportunity for companies in their road towards zero emissions. To help companies understand this opportunity, we share the most important EU regulations and their workings in a whitepaper. Please have a look at the infographic or download the whitepaper in the links below.
This whitepaper is the first step from Salacia and Rebel to offer companies the tools to make sure their sustainability reporting is not only a burden they need to comply to, but that the sustainability reporting has a positive impact as well. Keep an eye out in this page to make sure not to miss the upcoming articles, including a roadmap for companies to help them both comply to the EU Regulations and use their sustainability reporting for good!
