The European Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) is a legislative proposal by the European Commission aimed at enhancing sustainability reporting and transparency among companies operating within the European Union (EU).
The CSRD intends to build upon the existing Non-Financial Reporting Directive (NFRD) and expand its scope to align with the EU’s ambitions regarding sustainability and climate action, specifically in line with the EU Green New Deal.
Here are some key aspects of the CSRD to keep in mind:
Timeline for implementation
All GSES assessments are third party verified, allowing for interoperability between them and CSRD requirements (See Below!)
Upload your existing certificates on the GSES platform. After validating the certificates, you gain a zero-point measurement of your sustainability performance.
Complete the assessments for the missing KPIs and upload your evidence. An independent certifying institution conducts a desk audit.
Request an onsite audit, executed by a third-party auditor.
