Recently the Council and the European Parliament reached a “provisional political agreement” on corporate sustainability reporting requirements for large companies from 2024, a European Parliament committee reported. The aim is to put an end to the so-called “greenwashing” and lay the groundwork for sustainability reporting standards on a global level.
“The corporate sustainability reporting directive amends the 2014 non-financial reporting directive. It introduces more detailed reporting requirements and ensures that large companies are required to report on sustainability issues such as environmental rights, social rights, human rights and governance factors,” the parliament’s legal committee said in a statement.
MEPs and EU governments have struck an ambitious deal on compulsory reporting on environment, social affairs and governance. From 2024, large companies will need to publicly disclose information on the way they operate and manage social and environmental risks.— European Parliament (@Europarl_EN) June 22, 2022
