"The Process of Sustainability Reporting" whitepaper was written as a collaboration between Pelt8 and the Bundesanzeiger, co-authored by our CEO, Julian Osborne, and Jana Bibow, Fabian Puls & Yanesse Boumrar.
In this comprehensive Whitepaper, Pelt8 and our collaborators navigate the current regulatory landscape of corporate sustainability reporting with a strong focus on CSRD, providing a guide for businesses.
We created a simple checklist:
Sustainability Strategy: Successful development of a clear, stakeholder-aligned sustainability strategy embedded in corporate governance.
Reporting Requirements: Effective delineation and adherence to all sustainability reporting requirements.
Report Definition & Indicators: Creation of an inventory with essential indicators, including data sources, responsibilities, and validations.
Data Collection & Aggregation: Streamlined, audited data flow resulting in a comprehensive report output.
Tagging & Conversion: Final decisions on internal or external implementation of tagging and conversion processes.
Audit Preparation: Proactive communication with service providers and auditing entities to coordinate relevant deadlines.
Disclosure & Communication: Successful disclosure of the sustainability report and communication of its contents to stakeholders.
Implementation & Improvement: Active engagement in corporate action with clear milestones to implement insights gained from reporting.
This Whitepaper primarily targets consultants and professionals, including employees and their Environmental, Social, Governance (ESG) advisors. It serves as a practical guide for navigating upcoming sustainability reporting regulations.
