Deep dive into the directive on Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence (CSDD)

Regulation landscape webinar: Directive on Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence

After the successful webinar of Valentijn on both The Future of Corporate Reporting 2022 and his webinar on the EU Taxonomy and CSRD, Valentijn hosted another webinar on the fast-developing EU regulation landscape. Together with Renée Zijlstra, Valentijn took a deep dive into the upcoming Directive on Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence. Renée joined Intire as a senior consultant, after being Program Manager Non-Financial at Arcadis. In this capacity, Renée has done extensive assessments of upcoming regulations such as the EU Taxonomy, CSRD and how to implement these requirements in the organization.

During this webinar, Valentijn and Renée took another 30-minute deep dive, this time into the upcoming Directive on Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence. The 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.

To help you get informed on upcoming regulations the Intire EU Regulation Scan was introduced, with a specific focus on the CSRD, EU Taxonomy, and Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence directive. This comprehensive scan allows your company to get an insight in what regulations will be relevant for you, what data you will have to collect and report on, and optionally, how to get there.
