Who, What, When: The Impact of the EU CSRD on Non-EU Companies

The EU's Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive ("CSRD") requires the most detailed and onerous ESG reporting and disclosures anywhere in the world.

This White Paper discusses when, and to which companies, the requirements will apply; analyzes hot button issues around the required disclosure topics; highlights key areas of concern for issuers of EU-listed securities; and gives six key takeaways for companies seeking to understand and, ultimately, comply with the CSRD.
