Mandatory CSR reporting

The new mandatory CSR reporting Directive in the EU requires companies, banks and insurance firms to disclose the actions they are taking with regard to sustainability issues. In EU member states France and Denmark, an obligation to disclose information about certain sustainability aspects has already been in place for many years. The goal of implementing the EU-wide mandatory CSR reporting Directive is to achieve consistent and transparent reporting on environmental, social, labour and human rights and corruption and anti-bribery matters, and to ensure that disclosures of non-financial information is uniform comparable. The bill for the German transposition of mandatory CSR reporting Directive came into force on 19 April 2017. We support our clients with the preparation of the relevant information, data and performance indicators required for the reports.
