CSRD readiness: Move forward with confidence

Starting in 2024, the EU’s Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) will come into effect, imposing stricter disclosure requirements on companies regarding their environmental, social and governance (ESG) performance compared to the existing Non-Financial Reporting Directive (NFRD). While companies currently reporting under NFRD will transition to CSRD when filing their 2024 financial year report, by 2028, over 50,000 companies with significant business in the EU, regardless of their headquarters’ location, will be obligated to disclose under CSRD.

At UL Solutions, our CSRD Advisory team and UL 360 sustainability software provide expert guidance to help you navigate the CSRD disclosure process. Whether you need assistance with the entire CSRD reporting process or only specific sections, we can help with:

Regulatory timeline for CSRD compliance



5 key benefits to proactive CSRD planning

Proactive planning plays a pivotal role in helping organizations meet CSRD requirements with the following benefits:

  1. Anticipating regulatory changes: Staying up to date with evolving CSRD regulations is essential to identifying upcoming regulatory changes, assessing their potential impact and preparing for compliance in advance. 
  2. Resource allocation: Keeping compliant with CSRD regulations often demands significant resource allocation. Proactive planning helps to facilitate effective time, financial and personnel allocation for seamless integration of compliance practices into existing business practices. 
  3. Process streamlining: By proactively mapping out workflows, identifying bottlenecks and establishing clear responsibilities, companies can create efficient processes, including technology solutions to simplify data collection, analysis and reporting that support compliance efforts. 
  4. Risk mitigation: Noncompliance with CSRD regulations exposes companies to both financial and reputational risks. When you can identify and assess potential compliance risks, you can implement appropriate risk mitigation strategies that can help you avoid penalties and retain investor and public trust.
  5. Stakeholder engagement: Proactive planning encourages companies to engage with their investors, customers, employees and communities in a more meaningful way. By involving stakeholders in compliance efforts, companies can gain valuable insights, build transparency and foster trust-based relationships.
