Sustainability reporting, a must for many organisations and soon, even an obligation in Europe. To understand sustainability standards is one thing, but to prepare for a limited or reasonable assurance audit is another. The effort of preparing for such audits will be much more productive and less exhaustive for your organization when you understand the minimum requirements an auditor has in order to issue an audit opinion on a sustainability report.
The Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD), is a widely known buzzword and new EU law that requires large companies and certain public-interest entities to disclose information on their ESG impacts in their annual financial reports. This new and demanding regulation drives companies in their sustainability reporting journey. A well-known starting point for (sustainability) reporting is the materiality assessment. The CSRD introduces a new dimension to this assessment: double materiality.

Over the last few weeks, it’s been hard to miss the buzz around the anticipated acceptance of the Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD). On November 10th, the European Parliament has approved the proposed directive (with 85% of the Parliament in favor!), which will become effective as of for the first group of corporations in the beginning of next year at the latest. With the acceptance of the Directive, the sustainability reporting standards have seen updates as well.
This fall, we held our knowledge-sharing and in-person event “Non-Financial Reporting for Financials” at the most sustainable location of Central Netherlands: KAS.

The Directive on Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence, also known as CSDD, is part of the ‘Fit for 55’-package and the European Green Deal. The CSDD has a very close link with the CSRD. According to the CSRD, a company must establish processes to properly collect information for reporting purposes. This obligation is closely related to the due diligence obligation established under the CSDD directive to identify negative impacts. Furthermore, companies falling within the scope of both directives must report (CSRD) on their due diligence obligations (CSDD). The proposed directive will result in more complete and effective reporting by companies under the CSRD directive.
