Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD)

As of Jan. 1, 2024, large companies must comply with new accounting rules, which, among other things, require them to record their carbon emissions and environmental pollution.

One of the most important European sustainability legislation is the CSRD – the Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive.

This page explains what this legislation means, why it is important, when it applies to you (or not), and exactly what numbers you need to provide.

CSRD – Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive. What is it?

A European directive that deals with transparency and describes what companies have to report in their annual report.

Usually, an annual report is about money or numbers, but in this case, it is about ESG topics (Environmental, Social, and Governance) including CO2 emissions, working conditions, impact on biodiversity, and human rights.

It involves the entire value chain, divided into three ‘scopes’.
Scope 1: The company itself
Scope 2: Impacts that the company has on other companies
Scope 3: The activities in the company’s value chain

Who, What, When?

As of January 1, 2024
The directive applies to listed companies in the European Union with more than 500 employees. From their annual report in 2025, the reports will be back.

As of January 1, 2025
The directive also applies to unlisted large companies. The exact limit is still being determined, but presumably, companies must meet two of the following three criteria:

  • 50 million net sales
  • 25 million on the balance sheet
  • 250 or more employees

As of the 2026 annual report, the reports can be read back.

As of January 1, 2026

It also applies to medium and small stock market funds

As of January 1, 2028

The directive applies to non-EU companies with branches and subsidiaries in the EU that generate more than €150 million in turnover in the EU.

What’s the reason for this law?

Europe has ambitions to become greener. With this law, businesses are held responsible for their impact on people and the environment.

In addition, this legislation is a uniform guideline that makes it easy to compare companies within a sector.
This makes it possible to identify which companies perform well, or poorly, within a sector. This is important for investors, banks, consumers, trade unions and NGOs.

CSRD and mobility

A company’s mobility emissions belong to the scope 1 emissions. In Europe, about 15% of total CO2 emissions are caused by cars and vans, and more than half of those are work-related. In the Netherlands, that percentage is even higher (25%) and the reporting requirement “Reporting Requirement Work-related Mobility of Persons” goes a lot further than CSRD.

More than 100 people? Then you are not subject to the CSRD, but the WPM reporting obligation does apply.

Are you not subject to the CSRD requirement as mentioned above, but your organization does employ more than 100 people? Then you are also obligated to do something.

As of July 1, 2024, under the Reporting Requirement Work-related Mobility of Persons, as an employer with more than 100 employees, you are required to record and report your employees’ CO2 emissions.

Fynch makes this easy for you.

  • 2025 benchmark joint emission ceiling. This may be followed by a standard for CO2 emissions per km.
What data should I provide?

In short, for all kilometers, the mode of transport/fuel type,  divided into commuting and business kilometers must be provided. This applies to both private cars and lease cars.
