Lean & Green Skillnet, in association with Skillnet Ireland, is hosting a national roadshow to equip businesses with the tools they need to successfully navigate the new Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) requirements. The roadshow will visit three locations across Cork, Limerick, and Dublin from August to October to help organisations prepare for new mandatory sustainability reporting.  

The mandatory CSRD places Environmental, Social and Governance issues on the same playing field as financial reporting which means businesses will need to integrate sustainability into their core operations and business strategy.  

The new Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSDR) 

From January 1st, 2024, the new CSRD begins to come into force which means that all large firms within its scope and those in their supply chains, need to act now to be compliant with mandatory reporting requirements. CSRD will close the gap between traditional “green” roles and non-environmental roles by expanding disclosure requirements.  People, Processes and Technology will all be impacted as demand for certain skills increases.  This is a significant change to how the economy currently operates and will bring about a profound change in design, production, services, consumption, and investment that will be impossible to achieve without skilled people.  

“CSRD’s impact is likely to be far-reaching and the challenge it presents is something all businesses should be considering now. Companies need to understand the impact of the directive on their competitive strategy, internal capabilities, supply chain, and across their key business processes and prepare a response plan.” Ken Stockil, Lean & Green Skillnet Promoter.  

The CSDR National Roadshow with Lean & Green Skillnet 

The first event in Cork is taking place on the 24th of August to help organisations respond to the challenges and opportunities that CSRD brings and to help address the skills needs, processes and technological changes that will be required. These events will focus on the need for companies to implement sustainability initiatives in a standardised and transparent way. Expert speakers will discuss the importance for companies to actively adapt strategies and policies in order to establish more sustainable business operations.
