Thematic Event: Leveraging Data in Sustainability Reporting for Competitive Advantage
26 October, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 9:30 pm
The situation in the EU regarding sustainability reporting is evolving rapidly. There is a growing emphasis on corporate sustainability and transparency, with a focus on the environmental, social, and governance aspects of business operations. The EU has taken significant steps to establish a comprehensive framework for sustainability reporting to drive sustainable practices across various sectors including Non-Financial Reporting Directive (NFRD), The EU Taxonomy Regulation, The Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR) and the Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD).
These developments in the EU have far-reaching implications for Switzerland, as it shares close economic ties and regulatory alignment with the EU. Swiss companies operating in or trading with the EU will likely be subject to these reporting requirements, even if not directly mandated by Swiss regulations. Therefore, it becomes crucial for Swiss businesses to stay informed and prepare for the upcoming changes to ensure compliance and maintain market competitiveness.
However, the implementation of sustainability reporting requirements can be complex. It requires the collection of a wide range of data and information throughout the value chain, which necessitates clear, practical, and unambiguous guidelines. Horizontal collaboration between all stakeholders, including businesses, regulators, and civil society, as well as vertical collaboration within organizations, is critical for effective implementation and the achievement of sustainable outcomes. Therefore we will come together with many different stakeholders to discuss:
What is the current situation in the EU regarding sustainability reporting?
How does the EU legislation impact Switzerland and its reporting practices?
What kind of data and information will be required along the value chain, and how can organizations effectively collect and report it?
Why is horizontal collaboration between all stakeholders and vertical collaboration crucial for effective implementation?
During this event, industry experts and thought leaders will share their insights and experiences, shedding light on the regulatory landscape in both the EU and Switzerland. Don’t miss this opportunity to connect with like-minded professionals, engage in meaningful discussions, and stay ahead of the sustainability reporting curve.
