What is the CSRD?
The CSRD is a new European directive that requires companies from 2024 to report on their impact on people and the environment in their annual reports. This legislation is intended to encourage companies to take their sustainability goals and performance seriously. It is a crucial step towards greater transparency and accountability within the business community.

Why is this important for your waste management?
The CSRD specific implications in the field of waste management. Some organizations are required to report on matters such as CO2 emissions, energy consumption, water use and waste production. Furthermore, you must indicate what measures you are taking to reduce this impact in the future.

This means that you not only have to say that you deal with waste sustainably, but you must also be able to demonstrate how you do so.
