Sustainable reporting

Utilize your CSR report for sustainable reporting with Lenzing Papier

An important component of corporate communication is the CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) report, which outlines the social and ecological performance of a company. From 2024 onwards, according to new EU regulations, listed SMEs will be obliged to report on their sustainability management activities. Today we would like to provide you with a few pointers as to why you, as a company, should already take action now and how you can use the mandatory reporting to your advantage.

Which companies are affected by the CSRD (Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive)?

  • Companies with 250 or more employees (irrespective of their capital market orientation)
  • A turnover of more than 40 million euros
  • A balance sheet total of more than 20 million euros

The mandatory reporting already applies as soon as two of the three criteria listed are fulfilled.

How can the CSR report be used for corporate communication?

If your company puts its sustainability performance and strategies at the centre of its communication, you can distinguish yourself from your competitors and be viewed positively by customers, employees and investors.

Another advantage of a CSR report is that it also serves as a transparency report. By disclosing internal facts and information on social and ecological performance, you show, that as a company, you are aware of your responsibilities and that you comply with them.

The CSR report can also serve as a source of communication on your company's website or social media. Selected sustainability achievements can also be featured in customer and staff magazines or in press releases.

Overall, the CSR report offers a valuable opportunity to integrate sustainability performance into the corporate communication and thereby promote a positive perception of the company. It is true across all industries today that the search for qualified employees has become very difficult. The environmental performance, along with other factors, is heavily scrutinized by future employees and is often the deciding factor for or against joining a company.

The key figures support the validity.

The newly enacted CSRD requires companies to provide in-depth information and key figures on how the issue of sustainability affects day-to-day business and how it has impacted on the company financially. The company's sustainability activities and CO2 savings of the company must be substantiated with concrete data. The more precise and comprehensive the data is, the more credible your stakeholders will perceive your company. At the same time, the CSR report is a great opportunity to differentiate and stand out from competitors.
