EU CSRD and Taxonomy

CSRD Software – Why Excels Are Not Enough

CSRD software is an invaluable instrument for CSRD reporting. Old methods like Excel cannot fully meet the requirements of the European Sustainability Reporting standards under CSRD. When utilising Ecobio Manager software for CSRD reporting, you can streamline your reporting process through the parallel paths of double materiality assessment and data collection, taxonomy classification and KPI report to sustainability preparation and assurance.

CSRD software is a must in compliant reporting

CSRD expands the detail of reporting compared with the requirements defined under the NFRD. Furthermore, companies are required to report their sustainability information following the new European Sustainability Reporting Standards (ESRS). These standards define in more detail what companies need to report regarding their:

  • governance relating to sustainability impacts, risks and opportunities
  • impacts of sustainability-related risks and opportunities on the company’s strategy, business and financial planning
  • processes for identifying and assessing sustainability impacts, risks and opportunities
  • metrics and targets that are used to assess and manage sustainability risks and opportunities

These mandatory reporting standards aim to ensure that companies are fully transparent about their impact on people and the environment and the risks and opportunities to the companies arising from sustainability issues. The reporting standards will assist companies in communicating and managing their sustainability performance more efficiently as well as providing investors with information necessary to make more informed decisions based on sustainability criteria.

The CSRD and ESRS will change sustainability reporting across EU to be unified and standardised. By the law, the sustainability statement includes a company’s corporate sustainability (CSRD) and EU Taxonomy information.  

Our SaaS solution is your key to tackling this challenge! Ecobio Manager helps your company create its sustainability statement electronically with required digital-tagged information and deliver it to the national contact point of the European Single Access Point (ESAP). This will enable investors and other stakeholders to access comparable non-financial information from companies operating in EU/EEA.
