What is the CSRD?

The Cor­po­ra­te Sus­taina­bi­li­ty Report­ing Direc­ti­ve (CSRD) was adopted by the Euro­pean Uni­on on Janu­ary 5, 2023 and will be adopted by Janu­ary 5, 2023 at the latest. July 6, 2024 into Ger­man law. The CSRD Direc­ti­ve obli­ges com­pa­nies to report com­pre­hen­si­ve­ly and trans­par­ent­ly on their sus­taina­bi­li­ty. The sus­taina­bi­li­ty report, which must be pre­pared in accordance with exten­si­ve cri­te­ria, must be inte­gra­ted into the manage­ment report of the annu­al or con­so­li­da­ted finan­cial state­ments. The sus­taina­bi­li­ty report must be audi­ted by an auditor.

When will my company be affected?

From now on, all com­pa­nies in the EU are direct­ly or indi­rect­ly affec­ted by the CSRD, regard­less of their size. This is due to the fact that com­pa­nies with a direct report­ing obli­ga­ti­on must exami­ne their enti­re value chain for sus­taina­bi­li­ty. This means that smal­ler com­pa­nies are also auto­ma­ti­cal­ly requi­red to pro­vi­de infor­ma­ti­on on their sus­taina­bi­li­ty. The direct report­ing obli­ga­ti­on will be intro­du­ced gra­du­al­ly. For exam­p­le, com­pa­nies that are clas­si­fied as lar­ge in accordance with HGB Sec­tion 267 are requi­red to report from the 2025 finan­cial year.

Why should I deal with the CSRD now?

The requi­re­ments for sus­taina­bi­li­ty report­ing include num­e­rous stra­te­gic decis­i­ons and manage­ment tasks that need to be recor­ded, bud­get­ed and plan­ned for in good time. Start now!
