We're delighted to extend an invitation to our

Tea with Reason: Navigating Sustainability Reporting

on 13 December 2023 from 9 am to 11 am at Hotel InterContinental in Ljubljana.

As the European Union strives to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, the Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) and the European Sustainability Reporting Standards (ESRS) have become a key element of its sustainability agenda. These standards are instrumental in elevating the transparency and comparability of corporate sustainability reporting, encompassing a broad spectrum of ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) issues, from mitigating climate change to preserving biodiversity and safeguarding human rights.

In light of this, it is essential that companies understand the steps needed to comply with the CSRD and the timeframe for its implementation.

When is your company required to start with reporting? What are the specific regulations and requirements outlined in the CSRD that you should familiarise yourself with?

There is no charge for attendance, however we kindly ask that you register in advance here. The event will be held in English.


9.00–9.30 Arrival & Registration

9.30–9.50 Jure Stojan, ISR: How ready are SMEs in climate reporting?

  • The state of EU reporting regulations: The opt-outs for SMEs are gradually expiring. In practice, SMEs may be required to report if their larger clients have already mandated reporting.
  • How does an SME's carbon intensity compare to larger companies? We can determine this by analysing the Spanish Carbon Footprint Register.
  • Leading SMEs are already committing to reducing their footprints – for example efforts of two initiatives in which UK NGOs play key coordinating roles: the SME Climate Hub and the Science Based Targets.
