Under the Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD), large and most listed companies in the EU will be required to start adopting European Sustainability Reporting Standards (ESRSs) in a matter of months, for financial years starting 1 January 2024. It is only a matter of time before other companies follow suit, with other large and small and medium-sized undertakings, among others, also being subject to these requirements as from financial years starting 1 January 2025 and 2026. As companies prepare for these new requirements, it is important that they understand the detailed disclosures and the related metrics that must be reported on. This CPE session will focus on the cross-cutting standards, setting out the general requirements and general disclosures to be applied throughout the sustainability reporting under the ESRS framework, together with the topical standard related to governance, being business conduct.

Specific topics to be covered during the sessioN

This session will focus on the disclosure requirements as detailed within:
• ESRS 1 General Requirements
• ESRS 2 General Disclosures
• ESRS G1 Business Conduct


As organisations respond to various sustainability pressures, accountants and non-accountants alike need to keep up to speed with the changing regulatory environment and learn how to gather, understand, and articulate performance on a range of material sustainability matters.

Target Audience

Members of the accountancy profession and sustainability professionals interested in the reporting obligations emanating from the ESRSs and/or who may be involved in the collection, analysis or reporting of such information.
