3rd Sustainability Brunch

CSR Reporting Who MUST – Who CAN – Who SHOULD?

Event date: 15. Dezember 2020 14:00 – 16:30

Venue: OÖNachrichten FORUM Promenaden Galleries 4020 Linz, Promenade 25

Many people are not yet aware that in the next few years – specifically for financial years starting from 1.1.2023 – CSR reporting obligations will be massively expanded. This will affect, among others, all large companies based in the EU with more than 250 employees. The Supply Chain Act, which will come into force in Germany in 2023, will also result in far-reaching obligations for Austrian suppliers. The number of companies that SHOULD take sustainability seriously is therefore very high.
