Supervision of
sustainability reporting
in accordance with the CSRD


Publishing companies



The social and regulatory requirements of sustainability reporting that companies are now subject to are ever increasing. In order to create the necessary transparency and comparability, through the Corporate Social Reporting Directive (CSRD) and the European Sustainability Reporting Standards (ESRS), European legislation requires companies to conduct sustainability reporting of non-financial information and key figures.

What does CSRD-conform reporting look like?

In view of the comprehensive disclosure obligations arising from the CSRD, our client, a group from the publishing industry, is establishing structured, group-wide sustainability processes. Prognos helped guide them through the entire process right up to the CSRD-conform reporting. This includes:

  • Conception and execution of double materiality analysis
  • Deduction of the ESRS standards to be reported, data mapping, including workshops to elucidate the relevant data points
  • Gap analysis, a KPI catalogue and support with data compilation
  • Supporting the creation of the sustainability report
  • Advising on the set-up of the sustainability governance structure

The project also includes supporting the strategic development of group-wide sustainability guidelines based on the key sustainability aspects with corresponding targets and measures.

Strategic orientation in sustainability management

During this extensive project, Prognos is collaborating with the client to develop a framework as well as an ongoing process for sustainability management, which includes reporting. Equally, the group can continue to develop its strategic focus in terms of sustainability in various fields of actions.
