Sustainability, CSRD and key figures for measuring sustainability

In the ICV Live Webinar, the definition of sustainability is explained in an introduction and, based on this, ESG (Environmental Social Governance) and the current regulatory requirements through CSRD (Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive) are classified.

The most important key figures for measuring the sustainability of a company (e.g. for measuring financial sustainability) and the challenges in assessing sustainability aspects and sustainability risks in accordance with CSRD are explained. Current studies on problems of CSRD implementation are presented.

Particular attention will be paid to the measurement concept for materiality, which is located at the interface between sustainability management, controlling and risk management.
