Understanding the CSRD

What is it, and why did the EU create it?

Starting in 2025, the European Union will require large and listed companies to disclose comprehensive information on their Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) practices under the Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD). This replaces the NFRD and broadens reporting to include pollution, water, waste, and biodiversity.

The CSRD’s ESRS standards outline what and how companies should disclose, with disclosures subject to audit assurance. Notably, ESRS E1 focuses on disclosing environmental impact, including carbon footprint and mitigation efforts. Compliance is crucial, especially if disclosures are material for stakeholders.

When does your company need to comply?

The EU created the CSRD to promote transparency and accountability in corporate sustainability practices, aiming to advance environmental protection and social responsibility while empowering stakeholders with reliable information. Not all companies are required to comply with the CSRD, but we highly recommend taking action because of the benefits it brings.

The CSRD mandates compliance for large and listed companies operating within the European Union. This includes publicly traded companies and those with over 250 employees. Compliance ensures transparency and accountability in environmental, social, and governance (ESG) practices, aligning with the EU's commitment to sustainable development.

Approach the CSRD with impact

It's crucial to recognize that four key topics demand significant preparation and effort, making it essential to get your hands on them early. Starting preparations now ensures a smoother and more effective integration of these critical elements into your CSRD strategy.

Double materiality assessment

The term “double materiality” refers to the fact that companies reporting on sustainability must consider the relevance of a sustainability matter from two perspectives:
1. Impact materiality, meaning the impact on people and the environment.
2. Financial materiality, meaning how climate-related events create risks and opportunities for the company.

CSRD gap analysis

Evaluate your current sustainability reporting practices against the requirements set forth by the CSRD. It helps identify gaps between your existing disclosures and what the CSRD mandates. By doing so, you gain insights into areas where your reporting may fall short or where improvements are needed.

Carbon management

ESRS E1, one of standards you need to take into account when preparing for the CSRD, requires you to disclose gross scopes 1, 2 and 3 and total GHG emissions (including intensity per revenue) of your company.

Initially, Futureproofed served purely as a carbon management software. Today, Futureproofed also has a dedicated CSRD module, linked to all carbon emissions automatically.
