In 2014, the non-financial reporting directive, the predecessor of the CSRD was launched. It became effective in 2017, and added to that there is a Paris Agreement since 2015. Current upcoming EU legislation really forces many organizations into action. On top of that economic challenges are faced due to the Ukrainian war and resulting effects on the energy market worldwide effecting each and every organization. This program aims to provide guidance on:

  • How to address ESG regulations: support leaders to adjust their organization to the requirements the EU Directive on ESG. What does it mean strategically not only for reporting but also for strategy in companies? What’s impact on and the role of companies and their board members (CFO, CEO, audit committee)? ​ What are the risks, but also the opportunities?   
  • How to handle the complexity of the changes needed, how to navigate through insecure times, when there is no best practice available yet, how to use innovation techniques to become resilient. How to move and act without knowing an exact outcome in order to anticipate on risks and opportunities.
  • How to change a fragmented ESG approach in business to leading an integrated approach.

By participating in our Executive ESG topic modules, leaders in organizations learn on specific ESG topics supporting them to drive and lead change with confidence on ESG. Approximately every month a specific ESG-topic is addressed by combining cutting-edge research from expert Nyenrode faculty with case studies and insights by KMPG specialists. In an interactive setting you will be immersed in a specialist theme, accompanied by committed peers. 

The topic ESG & Reporting brings you up to date in one day about the latest developments in the field of ESG reporting and focuses on what you as a leader have to do to contribute to this transition. You will receive the latest academic insights from Nyenrode lecturers combined with the experiences from practice by KPMG speakers.
