The event

Featuring BNP Paribas Fortis, EFRAG, the European Commission, e*Finance Consulting Reply (Belgium) and Siemens.

In response to the European Commission's adoption of the European Sustainability Reporting Standards (ESRS) under the Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD), Reply is excited to host a roundtable. This event will delve into both the objectives of the CSRD and practical steps for implementing ESRS that support the EU's sustainable finance framework and allow companies to report on their sustainability performance.

The Business Luncheon will provide an opportunity to discuss:

  • How ESRS cover the Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) issues, their relationship to the International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB) and the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), and the phased-in approach adopted by the EU.
  • How large corporates and financial institutions are approaching the implementation of ESRS for the preparation of their sustainability statements.
