Implementing the Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive - Opportunities and Challenges
The EEAC Network, together with the Belgian Federal Council for Sustainable Development (FRDO-CFDD), the German Advisory Council for Sustainable Development (RNE), and the Department of Sustainable Development from Romania will be organising a joint webinar "Implementing the Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive - Opportunities and Challenges".

The webinar will take place on 13 October 2022 (11.00 - 12.30 CEST). You are cordially invited to save the date.

A provisional political agreement on the Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) has been reached at EU level. By implementing the CSRD, the EU intends to make ambitious but standardised and accessible sustainability reporting mandatory for more than 50,000 companies across EU Member States.

After the official adoption of the CSRD at EU level (end of 2022), EU Member States will have eighteen months to integrate the CSRD into national law. The way in which Member States implement the Directive is expected to influence the extent to which the objectives of this European proposal are actually achieved. During the webinar, we will therefore invite a panel of high level experts to address the following issues: 1) Which aspects need to be taken into account to ensure that the ambitious goals of the CSRD can actually be achieved? 2) What leeway do the Member States have in the implementation process, and how big a risk is this? And 3) How can we learn from the implementation of the CSRD's predecessor, the Non-Financial Reporting Directive?

The webinar aims to provide guidance and recommendations for action in the final phase of the implementation of the CSRD, so that the transformative potential of the new Directive can be fully achieved. To this end, both EU and national experts will contribute.
