The growing global population, demographic shifts, climate change and increasing pressure on diminishing natural resources have all brought sustainability to the top of the political, social and business agenda.

How we can help

Our world has undergone significant transformations. As the effects of the climate crisis, resource scarcity, inequality, and rapid technological advancements become more evident, businesses will have to transform to ensure their continued success. This requires the development of new strategies, business models, and operational practices, as well as enhanced reporting capabilities.

Sustainability is the capacity to create long-term value through a comprehensive focus on environmental, social and governmental (ESG) factors.

Our PwC purpose is to build trust in society and solve important problems, and we find tremendous opportunities to fulfil this purpose by assisting our clients in addressing climate and sustainability challenges within the broader ecosystem.

ESG considerations are now integrated across our entire range of services, reflecting our dedication to sustainability.

The Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) is one of the EU initiatives to drive the transition to a sustainable economic environment by improving the transparency on sustainability disclosures. By requiring more entities to provide mandatory sustainability disclosures, the CSRD is designed to drive changes in company behavior and bring sustainability reporting on par with financial reporting over time.

Ms. Nadja Picard, PwC Global Reporting Leader, shared the insights, practical experience, and market expectation on CSRD through “Requirement and Practice of Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) Seminar”.

ESG reporting – Double materiality approach

The Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) mandates companies operating within the EU to consider the impact of sustainability practices not only on their financial outcomes but also on the wider ecosystems and economies they function in. This leads to a discussion of ‘double materiality’ which requires companies to take into account the financial materiality perspective in an 'outside-in' approach and the impact materiality for affected stakeholders in an 'inside-out' approach. What does the concept of ‘double materiality’ truly entail, and how can your business incorporate this into its sustainability strategy and reporting?

Hear from Cyrus Cheung, our ESG Disclosure and Consulting Partner, who discusses the double materiality implications for companies looking to prioritise their sustainability initiatives with Cindy Ngan, our ESG Climate and Sustainability Partner.

The Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) – how can non-EU companies get ready

The Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) is one of the EU initiatives to drive the transition to a sustainable economic environment by improving the transparency on #sustainability disclosures. Non-EU enterprises should thoroughly assess whether the CSRD applies to their group or any of their EU or non-EU subsidiaries. It is particularly crucial if their securities are listed on an ‘EU-regulated’ market or if the group generates significant revenue within the EU. What are the criteria that companies need to meet and when should they start reporting?

Hear from Qing Ni, our ESG Markets Leader, who discusses the CSRD implications for companies in Asia with Cindy Ngan, our ESG Climate and Sustainability Partner.

Sustainability reporting - CSRD update

The European Union (EU) Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (#CSRD) has been adopted and is designed to harmonise and improve the quality of #sustainability #reporting for EU and certain non-EU companies. What are the new reporting initiatives and how can non-EU companies prepare for this?

Hear from Nadja Picard, our Global Reporting Leader, who shares the key insights of the CSRD sustainability reporting requirements with Cindy Ngan, our ESG Climate and Sustainability Partner
