EU NFI Directive: A comprehensive guide to the national laws

Joint event

EU NFI Directive: A comprehensive guide to the national laws

The EU Directive on Non-Financial and Diversity Information is now in force, with Member States required to have legislation in place since December 2016.

Accountancy Europe is pleased to host the official launch event for an important new publication, Policy & Reporting: Member State Implementation of the Directive 2014/95/EU, developed by CSR Europe and GRI with the support of Accountancy Europe. The publication provides a high-level overview of the similarities and differences in national transposition of the Directive across Europe – including scope, reporting features, auditor’s involvement and fines.

In addition to presenting the publication, the event will examine the role that non-financial information plays in the Future of Corporate Reporting. We will hear how companies perceive and respond to the latest NFI disclosure requirements, other developing reporting trends and the calls for greater business transparency. Also, we will address how SDGs can be integrated into reporting and reflect on how better disclosures can create value to a wider stakeholder audience.

This event is organised under the umbrella of Invest week.
