KPMG in Germany – Newsletter for Japanese Companies – ESG Reporting in EU | July 2023 – Preview

The EU’s introduction of the Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) has given voice to the global paradigm shift towards limiting global warming to “well below 2 degrees Celsius”, as the 2016 Paris Agreement demands. Since the CSRD also entails considerable ESG reporting implications for non-EU based companies, European subsidiaries of Japanese companies will now need to report detailed ESG information.

Current topics of the issue:

  • CSRD overview: General information, companies in scope, double materiality, requirements, assurance, exemption rules
  • EU Taxonomy
  • Status quo: Our observations
  • Flash News: Update June 2023: Publication of the draft delegated act on the ESRS
