Europe specific findings to be presented next in London
Are European Corporations role models for Sustainability (CSR) reporting? Given the high concentrations of energy, financial and pharmaceutical organizations, many believe Europe veers toward Sustainability (CSR) and the EU Directive on Non-financial and Diversity Information (Directive 2014/95/EU).
Our September 6, 2018, at 09:00 AM BST, live webinar presents a comparative analysis of Sustainability (CSR) and corporate social responsibility reporting by European-based companies and organizations from CSE’s Research on Sustainability (CSR) Reporting Trends in Europe.
While many companies researched are leaders in their field, they are not necessarily leaders in Sustainability (CSR). As the new European Directive is becoming embedded more and more in national legislation, CSE’s latest research program focuses on reporting practices of more than 460 corporations from 8 leading business sectors (financial services, construction, food and beverage, logistics, chemicals, healthcare, telecommunications, energy).
Important insights include:
- Common Sustainability Strategic Objectivesper sector in selected European Countries
- The impact of the EU Directiveon non-financial reporting
Other key trends include:
- Sectors with the highest reporting presence: Energy and Energy Utilities, Financial Services, Food & Beverage, Telecommunications and Construction
- Most companies publishing a Sustainability (CSR) report are listed companies whose global presence makes reporting a necessity to abide by international legislation
- A significant number of companies have adopted the UN SDG’s
- Most reports did not have external assurance
- Carbon footprint reduction has become a priority with many companies having well-stated and measured goals and targets.
The expert webinar will be led by Nikos Avlonas, president and founder of CSE. Join us on Thursday, September 6, 2018 at 9am BST. REGISTER HERE
