CSRD –Transforming Businesses, Impacting Futures

2023. 11. 21

We are all in this together.

Mindset change. Holistic approach. Right data.

These were the key messages of the event organized by BELGABIZ and DUTCHAM

on November 21st, at the K&H Auditorium in Budapest.


The Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) will make businesses more publicly accountable by obliging them to regularly disclose information on their societal and environmental impact. This would end greenwashing, strengthen the EU’s social market economy and lay the groundwork for sustainability reporting standards at global level. The Directive that entered into force on 5th January 2023 modernizes and strengthens the rules concerning the social and environmental information that companies have to report. A broader set of large companies, as well as listed SMEs, will now be required to report on sustainability.
The event gave a platform to get insights into the details of compliance, what kind of data needs to be collected and how, and how employees can get engaged so that their perception of the reporting is not yet another administrative burden but an opportunity for transparency and accountability.

During the snapshot presentations and the panel discussions top executives of Belgian and Dutch companies revealed their holistic approach of delivering ESG KPIs and educating their stakeholders ranging from suppliers, public authorities, employees and clients. Each industry and sector has different focus areas but they are in the same boat in the end for the common good of society and the environment.
