Businesses, banks and insurance companies in Europe should act in a more responsible and sustainable manner. The EU is now pushing this improvement process forward with the CSR reporting requirements.
The EU ensures a higher transparency of business processes by standardizing different practices across Europe through the CSR directive. In some member states, such as France and Denmark, there has been an obligation to publish certain aspects of sustainability for a long time. Companies from all member states will now be required to report uniformly on environmental, social and employee matters, human rights and the fight against corruption and the published data will be made comparable.
The EU Directive on the disclosure of non-financial information will be transposed into national law by the end of 2016. This future law will limit the type of information to be disclosed as well as the number of companies, banks and insurance companies in Germany. With the website www.csr-berichtspflicht.de (only available in German) we would like to provide you with the most important information and current developments in CSR reporting in cooperation with akzente kommunikation und berating GmbH. In addition, we offer you a check whether your company will be obliged to report in the future. In this check, you will learn what you can expect and how to deal with it.
