The Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) adopted by the EU expands the scope of reporting requirements for companies, particularly in terms of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors. This directive aims to enhance transparency and comparability of sustainability-related information disclosed by companies operating within the EU, with the ultimate goal of promoting sustainable and responsible business practices across the region.
