In this IoD Briefings webinar recorded on Thursday, 9th February 2023, Éamon Ó Cúiv, Partner, McCann FitzGerald LLP, presented his session titled, 'Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive: What Directors Need to Know and Do'.
The Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) is a key element of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) issues. The Directive means that companies will soon be required to publish detailed information on sustainability matters. This will commence in four stages, with the first one being in 2025. The aim of the CSRD is to increase a company’s accountability, prevent divergent sustainability standards, and ease the transition to a sustainable economy.
In his presentation, Eamon provided an overview of the key elements of the Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive, and what directors need to be aware of. The session also touched on other key pieces of ESG legislation, such as the Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence Directive (CSDDD) and the taxonomy legislation.
This event is part of our IoD Briefings Series and is sponsored by Accenture.
