BACKGROUND INFORMATION

Recently, stakeholders have increased the level of scrutiny over private companies when it comes to holding them accountable on their social and environmental impact. In fact, in line with this, EU law requires certain large companies to disclose information on the way they operate and manage social and environmental challenges. This helps investors, civil society organisations, consumers, policy makers and other stakeholders to evaluate the non-financial performance of large companies and encourages these companies to develop a responsible approach to business.

Specific topics to be covered during the session

  • What is Sustainability?
  • The Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD)
  • Corporate Sustainability ROI – Myth or Truth?
  • The different aspects of Sustainability : Social, Environmental and Governance

Why is the session of relevance to our members?

If businesses want to keep thriving, they need to adapt their strategies towards long term success in financial and non-financial terms. They need to identify where they create or destroy value and adapt their strategies accordingly.
Accountants can be a strategic partner for companies’ transition towards a more sustainable future.

Target Audience

Accountants and Auditors, Risk and Compliance Officers, Company Secretaries, Company directors
