Why Corporate Social Responsibility?

  • Companies that pursue a sustainability strategy are more innovative and often save costs
  • Investors increasingly focus on sustainable companies and funds
  • Customers, partners and the public demand transparency about the social and ecological contribution of companies
  • Sustainable companies have a purpose, this is how they find and retain top talent
  • Customers pay higher prices for sustainable products

CSR reporting obligations for companies.

Who has to report on what and how to prepare your sustainability report can be found in our factsheet which you can download here

EU law requires large companies to disclose certain information on the way they operate and manage social and environmental challenges. Directive 2014/95/EU lays down the rules on disclosure of non-financial and diversity information by large companies. This directive amends the accounting directive 2013/34/EU. Companies are required to include non-financial statements in their annual reports from 2018 onwards. This covers approximately 6,000 large companies and groups across the EU, including listed companies, banks, insurance companies and other companies designated by national authorities as public-interest entities that meet the following criteria.
