CSRD in Action | Webcast

Deep-dives into ESRS and double materiality

The Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) obligation is fast approaching. This European directive requires a great deal of effort from many companies and timely preparation. Most organizations are now aware that a lot is about to happen and that this has major implications. But do you also know at a detailed level what will be expected of you? What are the different ESRSs? And what do they mean for your company's operation and strategy? 

From the importance of a dual materiality assessment to the different ESRS sustainability standards - in this online webinar we take a deep dive. And you decide which of the two CSRD topics are currently the most relevant to you.
