Workshop Background

The new EU CSR/NFR Directive is already national law in UK and EU Member States. According to EU estimations, this new legal framework will affect more than 6,000 EU based companies (including UK) and thousands of SMEs through responsible supply chains and will reshape the way companies conduct corporate reporting.

Global Sustain ( supports EU, UK companies and foreign companies in the UK, but also UK companies in other EU Member States to comply with the new requirements on reporting of non-financial and diversity information. This workshop will give you first-hand knowledge and guidelines on how to comply with the EU Directive and the law in the UK and other EU Member States. This topic is relevant especially for corporations and SMEs with activity in the UK market or companies that belong to a UK multinational or are suppliers companies that fall into the scope of the Directive. The EU NFR Directive is a game-changer in the expectations placed on public interest companies to disclose certain information.

Is your organization prepared for the changes? What are the implications of the EU’s NFR Directive and will your organization be in compliance?
