What is ESG?

Such an approach is pursued by business through, among other things, actions on ESG, i.e. environment, society and corporate governance in a broad sense. These activities are implemented both through a strategic approach – linking ESG issues to business strategy – as well as by implementing single initiatives for society and the environment, or by increasing its transparency related to sustainability.

Sustainable development is an approach to growth and human development that aims to meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. This approach is implemented by businesses, among others, through actions related to ESG, which stands for environment, society, and corporate governance in a broad sense.聽These efforts are integrated into business strategies and also executed through individual initiatives aimed at benefiting society and the environment. Additionally, businesses work on enhancing transparency related to their sustainability practices.

New ESG obligations of businesses

The increasingly stringent regulations, such as those from the “Green Deal” package, are the primary drivers accelerating business transformation towards sustainability. One of the earliest and most significant obligations affecting businesses broadly is the reporting requirement, stemming from the Taxonomy Regulation 2020/852, the SFDR (Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation), and the CSRD (Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive).

This directive has created a seismic shift for many entities, mandating a thorough examination of nearly every aspect of their operations from an ESG perspective, regardless of industry. It has elevated the importance of sustainability statements to the same level as financial statements.

ESG and sustainability reporting – which companies do they apply to?

According to the CSRD, sustainability information鈥攑receded by value chain identification and an in-depth dual materiality analysis鈥攎ust be reported by the first group of entities starting in 2024. In the subsequent years, this obligation will extend to additional groups, including large, medium, and small entities. In the final year of CSRD implementation, it will also apply to micro-entities that meet two out of three applicable criteria: relevant balance sheet total, net sales revenue, and average annual employment.

Reporting as defined by the ESRS

The ESRS (European Sustainability Reporting Standards) define what and how to report. Complying with the ESRS requires businesses to thoroughly understand these standards and implement new data collection methods from the start of the reporting period. Therefore, it’s crucial to have experts within the organization鈥攐r to outsource expertise鈥攚ho can interpret and apply these guidelines effectively.

Beyond reporting, which essentially aims to describe individual actions, businesses are also focusing on other key ESG topics. These include decarbonization, strategic approaches to ESG, due diligence and human rights throughout the value chain, the closed-loop economy, and many others.
