The ESG Reporter

Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) Reporter

Mandatory reporting

The Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD), proposed by the European Financial Reporting Advisory Group (EFRAG), was adopted in July 2023. Implementation will begin in January 2024 for the reporting year 2025. Reporting will be on a rolling basis depending on the size and location of companies.

In 2025, 50,000 European companies will have to comply with the CSRD. One of the key aspects of the CSRD is the concept of “double materiality”. Double materiality refers to the intersection of issues that hold economic significance for a company and those that are pertinent to external stakeholders.

ESG Playbook’s CSRD Reporter is included in the ESG Report Builder so companies can mix and match their reporting frameworks. The CSRD Reporter is also integrated with the Double Materiality Assessment for seamless material topic selection.

Double materiality defined

Double materiality is a concept which provides criteria for determination of whether a sustainability topic or information has to be included in the undertaking’s sustainability report.

Double materiality is the union (in mathematical terms, i.e. union of two sets, not intersection) of impact materiality and financial materiality. A sustainability topic or information meets therefore the criteria of double materiality if it is material from the impact perspective or from the financial perspective or from both of these two perspectives.

The CSRD will replace the existing Non-Financial Reporting Directive (NFRD) that has been in effect since 2018. Similar to the NFRD, the CSRD outlines reporting obligations for companies regarding environmental, social, and governance (ESG) aspects.

Its objective is to substantially broaden the scope of the NFRD, expanding both the reporting entities and the required reporting content. In the coming years it is expected that the CSRD will roll out industry sector-specific reports and reporting for companies operating in the EU, who will also have to report.

What is Double Materiality?

What Exactly Does Double Materiality Mean?

The double materiality concept has to do with the ESG-related information a company reports. Particularly, it involves expanding the scope of information that is considered ‘material’ or important.

With traditional materiality reporting, information is only considered material if it is related to factors impacting a company’s financial performance. When using double-materiality reporting, information relating to how a company impacts the world is also considered material.

Basically, double-materiality reporting involves reporting on ESG-related matters that affect a company’s well-being and reporting on how the company’s actions affect people and the environment.
