Historically, ESG reporting has been voluntary. However new legislation will make comprehensive ESG reporting mandatory for larger companies.
For example, the EU Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) will require companies to set targets and disclose progress across 10 topical areas (from biodiversity to marine impacts to climate change) — with data expected on 2024 impacts across multiple tiers of their value chain.
For facilities and manufacturers, this means that your brand partners may soon be requesting more data from you across a much wider range of sustainability topics.
