CSRD implementation: the Clever Way

CSRD implementation: the Clever Way

The CSRD, or Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive, is a major regulatory development in the realm of sustainable (ESG) reporting in the European Union. To comply with the CSRD, companies will need to adapt their internal processes, enhance data collection and data management, and possibly invest in new technology and expertise. Non-compliance may result in fines or reputational damage.

The Vision of Clever Republic

For many organisations, meeting the regulatory obligations laid out by the CSRD can be a complex and daunting task. This is where we can provide a helpful hand. We believe that that our vision of connecting the dots between data, people, business terms, processes, policies & technology perfectly maps onto the requirements for a good CSRD implementation:

Connecting the dots 

To ensure good ESG-reporting it is vital to connect all these dots within your organisation. We like to start small; investigating one part of the report or one data point and implement it to show the value of connecting these dots. From there we explore all other data points and involve business and stakeholders to show the value of ESG data governance.

What a CSRD Implementation could look like

We’ve thought about what business lineage of an ESG report, specifically regarding CO2 emissions, could look like. The example is implemented in Collibra. While we understand that a unique solution is required for each organisation based on their specific needs, our example can provide a glimpse of what your ESG-lineage could look like.
